The Mind is the Key: Preparing Tactical Leaders for Operations Other Than War.

This monograph examines whether Army institutions provide tactical leaders a frame of reference which adequately encompasses operations other than warOOTW. It begins by analyzing the nature of OOTWs environment- focusing on the object, aim, ways, and means. Applying Clausewitzs theory of war, this section uses the dialectic method as the basis for developing insights into the nature of OOTW. The synthesis from the dialectic forms the evaluation criteria used in subsequent sections. The monograph then uses the evaluation criteria in conducting a critical analysis of two case studies the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, and Operation Restore Hope. This study does not provide a detailed description of each case study. Instead, the analysis illustrates the planning and decisions required for these operations as related to the evaluation criteria.
