Description:
The massiveness of today's largest cities and the complexity of even the smaller urban conglomerations makes the planning and execution of operations within them a significant challenge. There is a call for a construct that makes these tasks manageable. This document proposes such a construct based on two fundamental concepts introduced herein : critical points and density. The two are applicable to virtually any urban undertaking whether the focus is on combat, stability, or support. They pertain to both the tactical and operational levels of war. The document will be of interest to individuals in the government, nongovernmental organizations, private volunteer organizations, and the commercial sector whose responsibilities include planning, policy, doctrine, training, and the conduct of actions undertaken in or near urban areas in both the immediate future and longer term.
Visualizing the elephant : managing complexity during military urban operations -- The challenges -- Thinking about the challenges.
