Summary
"This doctrinal publication describes a theory and philosophy of command and control for the U.S. Marine Corps. Put very simply, the intent is to describe how we can reach effective military decisions and implement effective military actions faster than an adversary in any conflict setting on any scale. In so doing, this publication provides a framework for all Marines for the development and exercise of effective command and control in peace, in crisis, or in war. This manual represents a firm commitment by the Marine Corps to a bold, even fundamental shift in the way we view and will deal with the dynamic challenges of command and control in the information age." -- page [i]
