New strategies are emerging to challenge traditional amphibious doctrine in favor of integrated battle group operations, or similar-sounding terms.
"New and better weapons, transport, and communications are sure to come in the future as they always have come in the past; and we must be always ready to change organization, tactics, and procedures as they require. But we must be slow to change in peace those methods repeatedly found successful in war until such new factors enter the problem. Change is not necessarily progress." –Admiral W. H. Blandy, U.S. Navy (Retired)1
