Review This Book
Colonel Laughbaum argues that current joint doctrine does not provide sufficient and acceptable guidance for synchronizing Air Force and Army deep operations. He analyzes service and joint doctrine produced since Operation Desert Storm and examines the evolution of the fire support coordination line (FSCL). He traces the development of the Army's AirLand Battle doctrine and historical Air Force Perspectives on the deep battle. His investigation of the deep battle during the Persian Gulf War emphasizes targeting and the application of the FSCL. Major Laughbaum provides five recommendations to change joint doctrine so that our services can work together effectively.
