The Hawaiian Maneuvers
NO.1
 By
BRIGADIER GENERAL RICHMOND
P.
DAVIS,
U. S. Army
EDITOR'S NOTE:
General Davis cOn/mands the Hawaiian Separate Ooast Artillery Brigade,The following letter was 71'rittenby h111lin respollse to a ,'eql!est for infonllation relatingto the part the Ooast Artillery took during the joint ere,'cises. (/-eneral Davis was greatlyrestricted in the scope of his lette,', for, as he state,., "an a,'ticle, would involve of neces-sity much that could not be published," 
T
HE mission of the Coast Artillery was to attack enemy vessels,to protect by fire the land utilities, to support by fire the mobileforces, and to coopel'ate with the] 4th Naval District in the defense.As we were confronted with the proposition that we did nothave enough men to man all the armament, the important decisionwasto distribute the menwith a viewto getting maximum efficiency.This was accomplished by manning all observation and fire controlstations, all searchlights, and the most important armament.The armament not manned was designated as alternate arma-ment and 'armament in reserve--the alternate armament to bemanned in lieu of the primary assignment of any unit in the eventthat the action took a turn calling for minor rather than majorarmament.You will see readily that the schememade the maximum use othe personnel.Our plan of action involved the standard tactical principlesapplicable to the operation of coast artillery units and to all situa-tions. They may be enunciated under the following headings:(1) Maintenance of constant and close observation:(2) Maintenance of close liaison with the Naval District andadjoining units, and the establishment of challenging stations.(3) Organization of forts against a land attack, holding undel'fireenemytroops attempting to land and meeting them on the beachwith the bayonet in the event of a landing. Counter attacking incase of a foothold.(4) Attack of battleships when within range. Fire very de-liberate for extreme ranges.(5) Attack of cruisers within range. Fire as for battleships.(6) Attack of mine sweepers whenever near mine fields orwithin effective range-mine layers whenever within range.
