Abstract:

This paper analyzes multinational command and control C2 arrangements since the Second World War with an eye to understanding how such arrangements have been successful. In particular, it considers the development of command relations from developments in the European Theater during the Second World War to modern day crises. Operations DESERT SHIELDSTORM were clearly a watershed. Since 1990 operations in Somalia, and Haiti, and subsequent operations in Southwest Asia and Eastern Europe have taught us much about multinational C2. In some ways were have now rediscovered the tools that worked so well in 1944 and learned to apply them to a wider range of operations and participating nations.
