Let's put "war" back into warfighting by James John Tritten( )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject matter of the recently published Joint Warfare of the U.S. Armed Forces (Joint Pub 1) is war. Its pages are steeped with historical examples of wars fought by this nation and the bravery of its citizens called upon to do their nation's bidding in foreign lands against many foes. Its principles guide the conduct of joint campaigns fought by the armed services in the context of general war -- "armed conflict between major powers in which the total resources of the belligerents are employed and the national survival of a major belligerent is in jeopardy. In the days of the cold war, we planned, programmed force structure, and trained for general war and generally considered limited war -- "armed conflict short of general war involving the overt engagement of the military forces of two or more nations -- as a lesser included case. We also did some, albeit qualified, specific preparation (planning, programming, and training) for limited warfare. Today, we have been told to plan, program force structure, and train for limited war and essentially to remove general war from the focus of any attention. This essay will recount how we got into this sorry state of affairs and recommend some extremely low cost alternatives which will keep the "war" in joint warfighting
Naval perspectives for military doctrine development by James John Tritten( )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 215 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

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

6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 84 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 )

5 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
Soviet naval war fighting capabilities by James John Tritten( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 64 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
Doctrine and fleet tactics in the Royal Navy by James John Tritten( )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 33 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
The strategic employment of the Soviet Navy in a nuclear war by James John Tritten( )

6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 15 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 )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 12 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 national security strategy is based upon the 25% budget cut negotiated with Congress, and a revised Soviet threat and new international security environment which assumes two-years warning of a European-centered global war with the USSR. During this period, the U.S. and NATO would reconstitute additional military capability. Outline of the 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. The new strategy is not simply an adjustment to existing defense doctrine or strategy but rather a fundamental revision to the way the U.S. has approached defense since 1945
