Abstract : This monograph examines the conditions that exist during the execution of contingency operations (as opposed to the combat conditions on a mid to high-intensity battlefield) in order to derive a training focus for the future. After reviewing the documents that establish power projection as a fundamental concept of the national military strategy and an anticipated form of combat for the armed forces, this monograph examines the Army and Joint doctrine that addresses contingency operations. The definitions, characteristics, and types of contingency operations that are described in the doctrinal publications on this critical subject illuminate the vast differences between the commonly held visions of mid to high-intensity warfare against a Soviet threat and combat in the post-Cold War era.
