A COMBINED STAFF
By Captain J. M. Scammell, Inf. R. C, U. S. Army
Due to the national situation in the United States, geographical and general, and to national policy, future wars of the United States must be expected to include operations overseas, both of attack and defense, which will require active cooperation and will be more or less successful as that cooperation is more or less complete.
This quotation is taken from an address delivered before the Army War College in 1907 by Admiral (then Commander) H. S. Knapp, U, S. N. Since that time our military and naval operations in the World War have conformed to the above prediction.
