Abstract:

With the revitalized interest in operational art and its application to military planning, there has been renewed emphasis on campaigns and campaign planning. Concurrent with the interest in operational art has been increased attention to military operations conducted in the environment described as Low Intensity Conflict LIC, or military operations short of war. However, there has been little attention paid to the possible use of campaigns in LIC. This study analyzes campaign planning to determine its application to LIC, and specifically seeks to determine if it is equally applicable to the four categories of LIC InsurgencyCounterinsurgency Peacekeeping Operations Peacetime Contingencies and Combatting Terrorism. The analysis is conducted using campaign characteristics and the tenets of campaign plans.
