Operation TELIC VIII to XI: Difficulties of twenty-first-century command

Daniel Marston

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    This paper analyzes the complexity of coalition warfare in the twenty-first century through the prism of the British Army's experiences in Multi-National Division South East (MND SE) and Basra in the Iraq War. Considered as a case study, this range of operations encompasses a range of experiences, from breakdowns in dealing with shifting national interests and aims and linkages to PJHQ, to working within a coalition with the US and Iraq and communicating shifting national interests, to demonstrating a clear understanding of the character of the war in which MND SE was engaged.
