The primary research question focuses on the adequacy of replacement operations during this period using the personal assessments of individuals involved in theater replacement operations. Adequacy for this research thesis focuses on two elements. First, it seeks to find specific statements made by the interviewees about issuesconcerns with replacement operations with the actual workload from combat operations. Additionally, the thesis seeks to identify issuesconcerns these leaders identify as potentially problematic had the amount of casualties met or exceeded the planning estimates. These challenges were assessed using the doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership, personnel, facilities, and policy DOTMLPF-P framework to determine which of the categories led to the issueconcern. The intent of this historical analysis is to assess performance of theater replacement operations during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm in order to assess what, if any, additional considerations should be made for human resource operations in Unified Land Operations.
