Abstract:

In the White Papers...From the Sea, and Forward...from the Sea, the Navy and Marine Corps presented a common vision for a future in which skillfully handled naval forces would enable the United States to exert its influence in the littoral regions on the world. Building upon the foundation laid by those papers, Operational Maneuver from the Sea deals explicitly with the full spectrum of challenges that we will have to face, the dangers and opportunities created by new technologies, and the very exciting prospect of adapting the tradition of maneuver warfare, not merely to amphibious operations, but to all aspects of warfare in and around coastal waters.
