Abstract : The nature of the littoral environment requires that the operational commander take advantage of the inherent capabilities provided by naval forces. Sea and air mobility, organic sea-based logistics and combined arms capability make these forces the logical response to most regional contingencies. Naval forces will be required to maintain control of the sea as power is projected over the shore. Effective application of the Operational Art and the Principles of War will maximize the effectiveness of forces employed in the littoral environment.
