Abstract:

This monograph examines operational exploitation and questions if enough guidance is available to give a commander the detail required to execute such an operation. Field Manual 100-5, Operations, requires commanders to plan exploitation as an integral part of every attack. Exactly how to do so has been left up to the commander, with little specific guidance available to assist him with the actions necessary to conduct such a complex operation. What are these actions, and how do we plan for them
