Abstract:

In this issue Military Review examines several issues. One is force projection- the ability to project combat power into a theater of operations to meet military requirements. Military Review also continues its series on officership. Plus, the journal presents a potpourri of articles on subjects ranging from law to cybercombat. Force projection is one of four strategic concepts that support the two national military strategies to promote peace and stability and to defeat adversaries when necessary. Force projection is the military element of national power that systematically and rapidly moves military forces in response to requirements of war or stability and support operations. Winning War a World Away reports on the Objective Forces vital, successful role in Vigilant Warriors 02, the third Army Transformation wargame, sited in the Caspian region. Increasingly essential to successful force projection is reachback. Reachback is the practice of using communications technology to tap into the array of information resources found at higher headquarters and emerging knowledge centers in the continental United States or other locales to support operations in far away theaters. Putting Reachback into Practice discusses how the Armys Center for Army Lessons Learned is doing just that to support forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. Reach Leveraging Time and Distance examines the Armys growing use of reachback and points out the challenges to successful reachback operations. Three independent articles address a number of wide-ranging topics. Military Commissions, Past and Future provides a historical context for U.S. use of military commissions. Civilian and Military Cooperation in Complex Humanitarian Operations discusses the intricate cooperation demanded in humanitarian operations. The Palestinian-Israeli Cyberwar relates how cyberwar might affect the United States. The series on officership is continued.
