Abstract:

Expeditionary operations have been conducted by military organizations for centuries; airmen have embraced expeditionary air forces throughout the last century. Our preliminary survey of the subject identified a broad range of historical examples that offer useful lessons for airmen seeking to better understand the challenges of employing expeditionary air forces at the turn of the 21st century. Taken from an earlier day, some examples involve ground operations entirely devoid of an air element. But even in cases where the air element is lacking, a host of significant factors relevant to contemporary airmen is readily apparent. One thinks, for example, of issues involving intelligence, logistics, force mix, force protection, serial taskings, operational innovation, and many other factors. In a word, our survey of past experience points up many instructive lessons for 21st century airmen seeking to come to grips with planning and conducting expeditionary operations. Herewith for your consideration are some cases in point. We would welcome an opportunity to conduct a more intensive assessment of this crucial subject.
