Foreword
Warfare in the 21st Century necessitates a complete shift in the way we think and the waywe fight. More than ever, the use of nonlethal effects is having a profound impact onconflicts. Much of today’s battlefield is in the minds of the public, shaped by the spokenword, cyberspace, media, and other means of strategic communications, as well as by our  physical actions. Consequently, melding information with physical operations may verywell be decisive in counterinsurgency and other stability operations. By meldinginformation operations with physical operations, the division commander, who is executinga war against an insurgency and simultaneously attempting to pacify a populace, can gainthe respect, compliance, and support of the people who may tip the balance in his favor.The enemy has become adept at all means of communications, in particular informationoperations, and uses his actions to reinforce his message. As a result, he influences not onlythe indigenous population but also the world as a whole. We must, as an Army, use all of our resources in a coordinated effort to regain the initiative and become proactive on the21st Century battlefield.This handbook is designed to provide you, the Division Commander, with a short guide to plan, conduct, and assess operations, ensuring effective integration of physical andinformation operations. Major points in this handbook are:
The ability of the enemy to generate popular support is his center of gravity.
All actions, lethal and nonlethal, impact either positively or negatively on hiscenter of gravity.
Commanders must define a clear end state for their operations and theintermediate goals to achieve it.
The intermediate goals equate to actions and perceptions of the people in thearea of operations.
The means of achieving these goals include all lethal and nonlethal means at theDivision’s disposal, including key leader personal engagements.Regaining the initiative in the information fight requires adaptive and creative leaders whocan effectively integrate information operations with all the warfighting functions into aseamless plan.
