ABSTRACT

Banners and Signs: The Use of Religious Symbolism in Combat Operations   [open pdf - 667KB]

From the Thesis Abstract: "This monograph examines how elements of information operations were used leading up to and during the Norman Conquest of England, in the history of the formation of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and expansion also brings elements of information operations into contemporary operations. In the current United States Army doctrine Field Manual 3-13, 'Information Operations', the lack of discussion of religious symbols used is a gap requiring further research and development. The implication from both campaigns is relevant to today's contemporary operating environments as the United States conducts combat missions against entities that use religion and religious symbols to incorporate legitimacy into actions."
