Declaratory policy for the strategic employment of the Soviet Navy by James John Tritten( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first major goal of this research effort is to determine the Soviet Union's declaratory policy for the use of naval forces or other military forces in oceanic theaters in the event of a major (including nuclear) war. What is sought is not what the experts in the West think but what the Soviets themselves say. Without access to Soviet war plans, one must rely on those unclassified statements by the Soviets that are found in their speeches, articles, books, radio and TV addresses, etc. Using a methodology termed 'thematic content analysis, ' the researcher will attempt to achieve his first major goal, elucidation of the Soviet Union's declaratory policy for the use of naval forces. This study will attempt to ascertain the declaratory policy for the strategic employment of the Soviet Navy in a war in which nuclear weapons are used or use of them is threatened. Primary emphasis will be on those naval missions that the researcher discovers the Soviets associate with nuclear warfare or with success in the attainment of war aims. It was the researcher's plan to identify declaratory employment policy herein form such material and then subsequently to test the workability of the declaratory policy in a larger study using other methodologies (hardware, exercise, sensitivity, and contingency analysis). Content analysis is the best technique available to infer declaratory roles and missions

Soviet navy data base, 1982-83 by James John Tritten( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study will first describe the static levels of Soviet naval forces assumed, then the assignment into each of the four main fleets. Next, task groups and units will be created. Finally, a data base for all major ocean areas is created using the raw numbers and task groups/units assumed. The final product is an unclassified data base of Soviet navy major war fighting assets with availability for participation in a conflict/crisis with no strategic/tactical warning given (bolt from the blue), where a surge of those units immediately ready for sea is done, or where mobilization and strategic warning is given. From this data base, scenarios may be tested against capability or force engagement modeling may be conducted

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper attempts to determine the levels of major Soviet combat forces in each of the ocean areas of the world and assess the capability of those forces to conduct warfighting operations from a standing, walking, or running start
The strategic employment of the Soviet Navy in a nuclear war by James John Tritten( )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is primarily concerned with what appears to be the primary role of the Soviet Navy: preparation for fighting of a nuclear war involving the USSR and the U.S. in which the homeland of each of these nation's is threatened with or subjected to destruction by long-range strategic nuclear systems (as strategic is generally used in the West). This research is concerned with two major issues. The first is to consider the strategic employment of the Soviet fleet in nuclear war and deterrence involving the Soviet and American homelands. Second, an important by-product is the creation of a better methodology for analyzing the Soviet Navy. The new methodology will be tested by consideration of these deterrence and war roles

America promises to come back : a new national strategy by James John Tritten( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of President Bush's new national security strategy first unveiled in Aspen, Colorado on August 2, 1990, involving a mix of active, reserve, and reconstitutable forces, and General Colin Powell's 'base' force. If implemented, the new strategy and force structure would return significant U.S. ground and air forces to the continental U.S. where most would be demobilized. In the event of a major crisis, the U.S. would rely on active and reserve forces for a contingency response, much as was done for Operation DESERT SHIELD. The new strategy is based upon a revised Soviet threat, and new international security environment which assumes a two-year warning of a major ground war in Europe. During this period, the U.S. would reconstitute additional military capability. Outline of all sources of new strategy and force structure, the 'base' force, transportation requirements, and whether or not the U.S. will retain a unilateral capability for overseas intervention. Discussion of parallel NATO initiatives. Discussion of major issues resulting from this proposed strategy and force structure, including: is the new strategy real, defining new goals and objectives in both programming and war planning, the effect of Operations DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM, new requirement for intelligence, requirements for decision-making, setting technological requirement research and development, investment strategy and industrial conversion, reconstitution stockpiles, impact upon DoD organization, a transition period, arms control, and new requirements for military operations research and analysis

Navy and military doctrine in France by James John Tritten( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History of doctrine in the French Navy 1300-1994 and contrast with military doctrine. Navy doctrine was primarily defensive and attrition-oriented. With this doctrine, Royal French Navy achieved high levels of combat success. After the revolution, doctrinal development and combat success were affected negatively, unlike in the French Army, there have not been major debates over doctrine did not routinely occur in the French Navy. One major exception is the period of discussion over the June Ecole (new school). France had a well-developed navy doctrine for multinational operations. They also experimented with new doctrinal concepts at sea. The French Navy did not confuse initiative with only offensive warfare. There is a history of initiative being an integral part of defensive warfare at sea. Doctrine changed most often with changes in government rather than changes in military technology. Many extremely valuable lessons can be learned from a review of doctrinal history in the French Navy and most of these lessons are valid today
Naval perspectives for military doctrine development by James John Tritten( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theoretical treatment of different types of military doctrine, including multi-service naval doctrine. The two basic aspects of doctrine are how a profession thinks and how it practices. Research then turn to what influences military doctrine: current policy, available resources, current strategy, campaign concepts, current doctrine, current threats, history and lessons learned, strategic and service culture, current technology, geography, demographics, and types of government. Note that a majority of these influences are current and not enduring leading to a tension between the need to be responsive to current issues and the search for principles, in turn, military doctrine influences tactics, techniques, procedures, local tactical directives, rules of engagement, training and education, organization and force structure, analyses, programming, campaign planning, strategy, policy, and other forms of military doctrine. Final discussion area concerns degree of directiveness that should be found in doctrine. There are no easy answers to this question which lies at the heart of any controversies over doctrine. Conclusions deal with what, then, is naval doctrine: common cultural perspective, fundamental principles, shared way of harmonious thinking, the art of the admiral, the heart of naval warfare." -- Abstract
Doctrine and fleet tactics in the Royal Navy by James John Tritten( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Navy was characterized by a recent RAND study as being "the supra-national institution that has inherited the British Navy's throne to naval supremacy." Given the legacy of the traditions that have passed from the Royal Navy to the U.S. Navy, one cannot consider naval doctrine in the U.S. Navy without first conducting an analysis of how navy doctrine evolved in Great Britain. This paper reviews and analyzes doctrine in the British Navy. It concludes with an assessment of the doctrinal process in the Royal Navy and with potential lessons for us today
Revolutions in military affairs, paradigm shifts, and doctrine by James John Tritten( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a description of the role that military and naval doctrine can play in revolutions in military affairs (RMAs) and associated warfare paradigm shifts. Reviewing lessons of past RMA's and paradigm shifts, the report postulates a need for theory to better understand the nature of revolutions in military affairs and paradigm shifts. The major conclusion of the report is that the leading role afforded technology in revolutions in military affairs is an incomplete model. Doctrine can shape and dramatically effect an RMA, and it does not only passively respond to technology changes. This study also develops naval versions of the classic land oriented RMAs. Finally, the report suggests that military organizations need to become 'learning organizations.'
Doctrine in the Spanish Navy by James John Tritten( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History of doctrine in the Spanish Navy 1270-1994. Early doctrine was oriented towards the close aboard battle. Under French (Bourbon) rule, new national navy organized and greatly influenced by French Navy doctrine. Some of the most sophisticated navy doctrine during the age of sail was written in Spain. The lack of continued combat had a negative influence on doctrinal development. Doctrine came easy to the Spanish Navy-probably due to cultural conditioning, lessons learned include: (1) the long time necessary to change doctrine in the Spanish Navy, (2) the very twisted path that doctrine took in Spain, (3) the close cooperation with France did not serve Span well, (4) successful innovation was not possible without a friend in court, (5) doctrinal innovation suffers without frequent combat, and (6) the Spanish Navy takes it for granted that there will always be doctrine in their navy
The influence of French naval thought on the U.S. Navy by James John Tritten( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the US Naval Doctrine Command was established in 1993, it reviewed the Lessons of Historical Naval Doctrine Development by the World's greatest sea powers. France was one of those countries which has a long-established naval tradition and a Rich History of Naval Doctrine. When the Comte De Grasse came to the aid of an embryonic us flighting for her independence, his decisions off the Virginia Capes in 1781 were shaped by sound doctrine that gave primary importance to the protection and support of actions ashore. There is a Robust History of French Navy Doctrine which has had a direct influence on the US Navy. In an effort to investigate improvements to doctrine, MOC has reviewed the specific writings of French admiral raol castex. Castex's theories of maneuver warfare are of immediate interest to the UNS today. Report concludes with assessment of the such theories are a interest to the USN under current conditions. First, USN may not be able to operate to its full capabilities due to external constraints. Second, USN does not deploy as a whole. Third, USN is stretched thin. Fourth, maneuver theory emphasizes sound planning. Fifth, it is necessary to master maneuver before we attempt to address information warfare or other concepts in any new revolution in military affairs
Let's put "war" back into warfighting by James John Tritten( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analysis of differences between general war and limited war and impact of end to program planning for general war. Reconstitution program planning was to be able to handle a resurgent/emergent global threat (REGT) but such programs have been de-emphasized by the current administration. Current active and reserve forces plus mobilization are only programmed as capable of handling two near-term major regional contingencies (MRCs)--limited war. They are not sufficient for general war. Author concludes that internal DOD planning should still exist for general war against a resurgent/emergent global threat. In the absence of programming and planning for general war, navy nuclear forces are the best hedge against an regt and offer opportunity to extend deterrence
