Part of the mission of the Naval War College is to further an understanding of the fundamentals of warfare. The "Principles of War" are considered to be one of those fundamentals. Accordingly, it is my purpose this morning to review with you the more widely accepted "Principles of War" and to give a few examples of their application in order to provide a better understanding and appreciation of their usefulness as guides in sound planning and in successful operations.
