Reading Athena's dance card : men against fire in Vietnam by Russell W Glenn( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The veterans' responses to Glenn's surveys and his review of other primary sources not only explain American troops' willingness to engage their adversaries but also allow the author to analyze the influence of training, fixed duration combat tours, and frequent leader rotation on performance under fire and chances of survival. Overall, the study clearly indicates that the conduct of these men under fire and their dedication to the U.S. compare favorably to those of their forefathers in World War II and Korea. These insights, in turn, offer a fuller understanding of U.S. fighting men, a special benefit to those who will lead them in future conflicts."--Jacket
Training the 21st century police officer : redefining police professionalism for the Los Angeles Police Department( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book summarizes a study conducted by RAND for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). The object of this book is to provide analyses and recommendations to assist the LAPD in meeting certain requirements and ultimately enabling LAPD to better serve the interests of the people of Los Angeles through improved training in five critical areas: use of force, search and seizure, arrest procedures, community policing, and diversity awareness
Street smart : intelligence preparation of the battlefield for urban operations by Jamison Jo Medby( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intelligence preparation of the battlefield (IPB), the Army's traditional methodology for finding and analyzing relevant information for its operations, is not effective for tackling the operational and intelligence challenges of urban operations. The authors suggest new ways to categorize the complex terrain, infrastructure, and populations of urban environments and incorporate this information into Army planning and decisionmaking processes
Combat in hell : a consideration of constrained urban warfare by Russell W Glenn( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Armed forces are ever more likely to fight in cities as the world becomes increasingly urbanized. Accordingly, public and moral concerns about the costs of war borne by noncombatants increase as well. This report is a study of urban warfare and its challenges for U.S. armed forces constrained by having to minimize noncombatant casualties and collateral damage. America's armed forces are likely to have to confront the hell of urban combat. They have the potential to do so successfully. However, this environment's challenging character is unalterable; it will consume any force that fights unprepared. This study, based on an in-depth literature search and scores of interviews, has three primary objectives: (1) Describe the conditions confronting a ground force fighting under the constraints of minimizing noncombatant casualties and collateral damage, along with the difficulties of fighting under such conditions in urban areas; (2) Identify U.S. armed forces' current capabilities and ongoing efforts to enhance them; and (3) Determine current shortfalls and present potential remedies for identified vulnerabilities. Consideration of such solutions will include analysis of feasible changes in doctrine, training, and technologies that would give regular U.S. forces the capability to successfully perform constrained urban operations
The city's many faces : proceedings of the RAND Arroyo-MCWL-J8 UWG Urban Operations conference, April 13-14, 1999( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arroyo Center, in conjunction with the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab and J8 Urban Working Group, provided the urban operations community a broad spectrum of descriptive and analytical presentations in its conference held April 13-14, 1999. The event sought to provide a forum for information exchange and debate on the complete range of possible urban operations likely to challenge U.S. national interests in the next generation. Such activities could include: operations at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels of war; domestic and international events; combat, stability, and support missions; service, joint, multinational, and interagency operations, in addition to those involving both active and reserve component forces from the U.S. military; and issues concerning homeland defense and weapons of mass destruction
Steeling the mind : combat stress reactions and their implications for urban warfare by Todd C Helmus( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combat stress casualties are not necessarily higher in city operations than operations on other types of terrain. Commanders and NCOs in the U.S. military should develop the necessary skills to treat and prevent stress casualties and understand their implications for urban operations. Consequently, the authors provide an overview of combat stress reaction (CSR) in the form of a review of its known precipitants, its battlefield treatment, and the preventive steps commanders can take to limit its extent and severity. In addition, to enhance the understanding of the risks that urban operations pose to the development of CSR, the authors interviewed participants in former urban operations and reviewed historical and contemporary documents. Many of those interviewed suggest that urban operations are inordinately stressful and that the risk of CSR may be high. But historical data from the battles of Brest, Manila, and Hue, as well as others, show no evidence of increased rates of stress casualties. The authors also review treatment and prevention steps from the perspective of military operations on urbanized terrain
Heavy matter : urban operations' density of challenges by Russell W Glenn( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study proposes a new way of viewing urban operations, among the most complex challenges facing America's armed forces. Viewing urban operations in light of relevant densities, regardless of whether combat, stability, or support missions predominate, offers a viable means of approaching an otherwise most imposing puzzle. Doing so provides a vehicle to better understand how to conceptualize issues of pertinence, the tasks and missions that will address those issues, and the specific ways of employing elements of national power in the service of strategic objectives. Following an overview of density's potential influence on military operations, the author proposes and discusses five approaches to dealing with its challenges: Matching density with density, effectively reducing densities, maintaining selected densities, addressing density asymmetrically, and capitalizing on urban densities. He concludes with an analysis of density and its implications for information operations conducted in built-up areas
Capital preservation : preparing for urban operations in the twenty-first century : proceedings of the RAND Arroyo-TRADOC-MCWL-OSD Urban Operations Conference, March 22-23, 2000( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 2000, RAND Arroyo Center, Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, and the Office of the Secretary of Defense hosted a conference on urban operations. Its objectives were to explain the significance of urban areas in current and future military operations; consider and discuss methods and means of seizing, stabilizing, or controlling such areas in the 21st century; identify technology requirements across the spectrum of urban operations; and identify C4ISR requirements inherent in military urban operations and ways of meeting these requirements. Along with a detailed introduction by the editor, this document includes transcriptions of each presentation--Provided by the publisher
Marching under darkening skies : the American military and the impending urban operations threat by Russell W Glenn( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent history provides evidence that U.S. participation in future urban military operations is inevitable; past events reflect that these operations are extraordinary in their demands on ground and air forces. This report draws on a review of relevant literature, service doctrine, training, and emerging technologies to assess U.S. military preparedness to undertake military operations on urbanized terrain (MOUT). Its concluding pages offer observations and preliminary recommendations addressing identified shortfalls. These recommendations include: (1) The four services should adopt Marine Corps Warfighting Publication 3-35.3 as the initial foundation for a more comprehensive doctrine on joint MOUT; (2) the U.S. Army Center for Lessons Learned should publish a MOUT lessons-learned bulletin; (3) include realistic consideration of operations in urban environments during service and joint exercises; (4) include MOUT considerations in the development of new technologies; (5) provide cadre at urban operations training sites; and (6) provide for complete instrumentation of selected Combat Training Center MOUT facilities
Urban combat service support operations : the shoulders of Atlas by Russell W Glenn( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inevitability of U.S. armed forces future involvement in urban contingencies worldwide demands that those responsible for arming, manning, sustaining, and otherwise supporting these operations prepare for the challenges inherent in such undertakings. This report gives an overview of these formidable tasks and recommends ways for the U.S. Army combat service support (CSS) community to prepare itself to meet them
Ready for Armageddon : proceedings of the 2001 RAND Arroyo-Joint ACTD-CETO-USMC Nonlethal and Urban Operations Program Urban Operations Conference( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On March 22-23, 2001, four organizations co-hosted the fourth annual Urban Operations Conference: the Military Operations in Urban Terrain Advanced Concepts Technology Demonstration, the Center for Emerging Threats and Opportunities, the U.S. Marine Corps Nonlethal and Urban Operations Program, and RAND Arroyo Center. Topics included the relationship between urbanization and revolutions in military affairs; the challenges of urban combat, based on personal experiences during the fighting in 1968 Hue, Republic of Vietnam; lessons learned from a 2001 operational and strategic-level war game; the development of theoretical constructs and decisionmaking aids for urban operations; a consideration of the operational-level challenges of coordinating urban internal security operations; the combat stress reaction that confronts individuals in the conduct of urban operations; the intricate and complex activities involved in maintaining peace and establishing stability in Brcko, Bosnia-Herzegovina; and the training essential to success in environments where much is demanded of the most junior-level leaders

Describes the operational challenges posed by the urban environment and proposes several recommendations to surmount them
Honing the keys to the city : refining the United States Marine Corps reconnaissance force for urban ground combat operations by Russell W Glenn( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U.S. forces have little live-fire experience with urban warfare, and much of that experience is dated (Hue, South Vietnam, in 1968 and Panama City, Panama, in 1989) or more suited as a negative example (Mogadishu, Somalia). This report seeks to identify current shortfalls in the area of urban ground combat reconnaissance and provide input to assist in the creation of urban combat reconnaissance tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) for the U.S. Marine Corps. The authors discuss four distinct challenges: the constant adaptation demanded by the environment, the complexity of tactical ground reconnaissance in built-up areas, the extraordinary demands of urban operations on military personnel, and the unique demands of these operations on equipment and technology. The analysts' main purpose is to narrow the gap between the sum of these challenges and the doctrinal, training, and equipment solutions immediately or soon-to-be at hand
Band of brothers or dysfunctional family? : a military perspective on coalition challenges during stability operations by Russell W Glenn( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counterinsurgency and other stability operations seldom present a nation with trials that threaten its very survival, barring cases in which that nation is the target of insurgents. Bonds between coalition members are therefore weaker than when threat of annihilation reinforces mutual dependence. Such situations are further complicated by the use of force likely not being the primary implement for attaining ultimate success. Devoid of a preeminent threat and denied primary dependence on armed forces, core coalition objectives tend to be political rather than military in character and include counterinsurgency, nation building, developing government capacity, and providing humanitarian assistance -- activities often associated with stability operations. Armed forces are not staffed or trained to meet the long-term demands of many of these tasks. An alliance or coalition must therefore incorporate participation by other government agencies and -- ultimately -- that of the indigenous government and its population more than is expected during conventional combat operations. Recent contingencies have also seen commercial enterprises, militias, intergovernmental organizations, and nongovernmental organizations become key participants in these undertakings. The result is coalitions of a size seldom seen and with a number of affiliations rarely, if ever, approached before the late 20th century. This monograph investigates the dramatic expansion of challenges confronting alliances and coalitions today and thereafter considers potential solutions that include questioning the conception of what constitutes a coalition in today's world
Urban battle command in the 21st century by Russell W Glenn( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leaders of America's ground forces recognize the importance of put- ting themselves at the most critical point on a battlefield, for it is there that their experience, judgment, and demonstration of physical courage can best influence the outcome of deadly combat. Yet being forward has its costs. The tactical command posts (TOCs) that a commander establishes are hubs of information, intelligence, specialized insight, and communications. Leaving a TOC involves a level of trust: trust that subordinates and staff will inform the commander of important events by exception, that is, the commander is not informed of all events, but will be informed when something of sufficient importance takes place to warrant doing so. If the commander has left the TOC, it means that his ability to receive those messages is less consistent. A leader on the road or in the air has fewer means to send or receive information, and those messages have more chances to fall prey to the vagaries of geography or the myriad other demons that plague military communications. Even reaching the forward position does not resolve the dilemma. The commander is in one sense as well informed as is possible. The situation at his location is described by those most familiar with it. He sees the faces and senses the attitudes of his soldiers or marines. He surveys the ground with his own practiced eye. But the leader knows that he sees and understands but one part of his command. The cost of intimacy at one point is lesser understanding of all others
