about

This study explores maneuver warfare theory, naval tactics and if maneuver warfare influences or can be applied to naval tactics and battle. The concepts of attrition warfare and maneuver warfare are investigated. The study is presented from a naval perspective. To support this perspective, aspects of war at sea and war on land are discussed. This comparison of sea power helps develop the idea of naval maneuver warfare. Foundations of naval tactics are outlined and the uniqueness of naval battle is also explored. Through historical and tactical examples, and discussions this study shows maneuver warfare theory and concepts apply to naval tactics and battle. Furthermore, maneuver warfare is addressed with respect to military culture and other warfare theories including attrition warfare theory. Maneuver warfare strengths and limitations are discussed. The U.S. Navy has recently embraced maneuver warfare theory, perhaps too quickly. Quite a heavy maneuver emphasis has developed that does not fully appreciate other warfare theories. This study presents a balanced discussion and contributes to the current debate that is shaping U.S. Navy doctrine.
