AirLand Battle doctrine introduced the operational level of war- the design and conduct of campaigns and major operations- to the U.S. Army. Operational art begins with operational planning. FM 100-5 identifies branches, sequels, and the employment of operational reserves as important factors in operational planning. But beyond stating their importance, doctrine provides little discussion. This monograph addresses the question of how branches, sequels, and operational reserves enable the operational commander to achieve his objective.
