“My Clan Against the World”: U.S. and Coalition Forces in Somalia 1992-1994
Robert F. Baumann (au); Lawrence A. Yates (au); Versalle F. Washington (au); Lawyn C. Edwards (fr)
Examines the American military’s experience with urban operations in Somalia, esp. in the capital city of Mogadishu. That original focus can be found in the following pages, but the authors address other, broader issues as well, to include planning for a multinational intervention; workable and unworkable command and control arrangements; the advantages and problems inherent in coalition operations; the need for cultural awareness in a clan-based society whose status as a nation-state is problematic; the continuous adjustments required by a dynamic, often unpredictable situation; the political dimension of military activities at the operational and tactical levels; and the ability to match military power and capabilities to the mission at hand.
