 Asymmetric warfare - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Asymmetric warfare is a military term describing warfare in which the two belligerents are mismatched in their military capabilities or their accustomed methods of engagement.
Usually in warfare at the start of the conflict, the belligerents deploy forces of a similar type and the outcome of the war can be determined by the quality and quantity of the opposing forces.
Similarly, laws of warfare prohibit combatants from using civilian settlements, populations or facilities as military bases, but when an inferior power uses this tactic, it depends on the superior power respecting the law that they are violating, and not attacking that civilian target.

 combatindex.com - Law of Land Warfare
The purpose of this Manual is to provide authoritative guidance to military personnel on the customary and treaty law applicable to the conduct of warfare on land and to relationships between belligerents and neutral States.
Treaties governing land warfare are applicable to various forms of war and armed conflict as provided by their terms.
As the customary law of war applies to cases of international armed conflict and to the forcible occupation of enemy territory generally as well as to declared war in its strict sense, a declaration of war is not an essential condition of the application of this body of law.

 Ancient Greek warfare
Modified by Philip II and mainly by Alexander the Great after the Macedonians conquered Greece, this new age of warfare lasted until the rise of the Roman Empire, when new tactics and the legion formation became the general methods of battle.
The new developments in land warfare only encouraged individuals to attempt an overthrow of the current aristocratic or kingly leader in their respective polieis.
By the end of the 6th century BC almost every polis had been permanently decided as either an oligarchy or a democracy, and so the men of a polis became the army of that polis, not the army of a given tyrant who sought after power.

 Information Technologies and the Future of Land Warfare   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
It should be noted that this report is about the effects of the information technologies upon future land warfare rather than about "information warfare" per se.
The workshop participants generally agreed that the nature of conflict is changing not so much because of technological changes in the means of warfare as because of technical, demographic, and geopolitical shifts of power.
One of the more intriguing observations in the workshop was that warfare in the information era has come to resemble improvisational theater on a world stage, where major policy shifts can result from a single good or bad scene.

None of this is to denigrate or belittle the contributions of airpower to the conduct of war.
None of the land campaigns could have been conducted as successfully, as rapidly or effectively without the air operations that delivered firepower, acquired intelligence, assured mobility and delivered logistic support.
Terrorism, unconventional warfare, guerrillas and asymmetrical attacks have become the forms of modem war, and coping with that realization is the responsibility of our military establishment.

 The United States Needs to Exp1oit Its Air Power Advantage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Indeed, many naval warfare experts were surprised by the fact that aircraft rather than battleships were the primary means we used for defeating Japan's navy.
Because heavy land forces were slow to arrive in the Middle East and because our political and military leaders feared that land combat would claim many casualties, air power began the attack on Iraq while coalition land forces remained on the defensive.
Once the coalition's land offensive began, our military leaders could have continued to use their superior situation awareness to control friendly land maneuver in a way that enhanced the ability of our air power to defeat the Iraqi army.

 GI -- World War II Commemoration
The landing craft were of two basic types: (1) ships and boats that had the ability to beach without swamping, and also to withdraw; and (2) amphibians.
Two models were employed: the personnel carrier, LVT (landing vehicle, tracked), with a ramp in the rear, which allowed troops to debark quickly under some cover; and the LVT (A), or armored amphibian, which was actually an amphibious tank.
Insofar as future warfare was concerned, the most important naval developments of World War II may have occurred in the North Atlantic, where the struggle for survival of Great Britain was won before the United States offensive in the Pacific began.

It's "The Land and the Warfare", because conflict was the immediate experience of the children of Israel when they entered Canaan.
For Christians, "a land flowing with milk and honey" is one of the illustrations of the spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ, which Paul states, in Ephesians chapter 1 verse 3, is a reason for praising God.
The warfare of the children of Israel had to do with fighting the inhabitants of Canaan, gaining victories, dispossessing them, and taking over their lands, towns and cities.

 Achtung-Panzer!: The Development of Tank Warfare - Heinz Guderian   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Guderian's treatise on the importance of tank development, and on modern mechanized technology, shows exactly why the Germans dominated land warfare in the early stage of the fighting.
By an outstanding soldier of independent mind, it pushed forward the evolution of land warfare and was directly responsible for German armoured supremacy in the early years of the Second World War.
Published in 1937, the result of 15 years of careful study since his days on the German General Staff in the First World War, Guderian's book argued, quite clearly, how vital the proper use of tanks and supporting armoured vehicles would be in the conduct of a future war.

The more radical and speculative view is that information warfare is becoming an alternative to more traditional forms of war, a theory that would therefore discard much of the information-based weaponry of the first interpretation.
What is so disturbing about information warfare and the RMA is that some of its adherents have done precisely what Cohen and Gooch properly warn against.
In a speech to National Defense University on 3 May 1994, Rep Gingrich argued that Clausewitz is outdated because he is tied to the concepts of Napoleonic warfare, while omitting the fact that Sun Tzu came from a society that has no relation to us in any way, shape, or form.

 Présentation - Hague Convention IV 1907
One of the purposes for which the First Hague Peace Conference of 1899 was convened was "the revision of the declaration concerning the laws and customs of war elaborated in 1874 by the Conference of Brussels, and not yet ratified" (Russian circular note of 30 December 1898).
The Conference of 1899 succeeded in adopting a Convention on land warfare to which Regulations are annexed.
The provisions of the two Conventions on land warfare, like most of the substantive provisions of the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907, are considered as embodying rules of customary international law.

Scales sets out to define the environment of limited warfare, identify some lessons and insights, and draw on these to suggest how the United States may fight land warfare in the future.
Simply put, General Scales' thesis is that the United States is developing a style of warfare based on substituting firepower for manpower and then he stipulates how that development will continue in the future.
To illustrate the case for his vision of future warfare, he posits a Serbian invasion of Kosovo in 2020 that is ultimately defeated by a lighter, more lethal ground force deployed rapidly into the theater and supported by closely integrated joint forces.

 A New Model For Land Warfare   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
For the most part, these views are derived from a careful study of guerrilla warfare, blitzkrieg tactics, air power doctrine, and concepts for mobile warfare in a fluid environment.
The advent of tactical air power changed this traditional land warfare model very little because aerial weapon systems were viewed by U.S. Army doctrine writers as just another form of flexible firepower with which to support ground forces.
Although current doctrine now refers to land warfare as the "joint air-land battle," and combat power is considered to be an amalgam of firepower and maneuver, the dominant-subordinate relationship between maneuver forces and supporting firepower remains essentially the same.

 ADSC Working Paper No. 58 - Introduction ARMY'S FUNDAMENTALS OF LAND WARFARE: A DOCTRINE FOR NEW TIMES?
This is in part because it insists on restricting its considerations of Army's future operational milieu to war and its future role to fighting or preparing to fight wars.
As such, LWD1 provides a highly selective and, I would suggest, inadequate conceptual framework for considering the roles of land forces and the land component of military power in the twenty-first century.
Indeed, is Army's 'hierarchy of doctrine' seen to be the last word on the subject of land warfare and all that is necessary for planning appropriate force structures or designing interesting and informative curricula for military education and training?
