Description

"Allied Participation in Operation Iraqi Freedom "highlightsa number of key aspects of allied support to the U.S.-led operation.The presence of ground forces from so many coalitionpartners allowed U.S. combat forces to focus their generally superiorcapabilities in more contested sections of the country.This division of labor served American ends while still ensuringthat our partners performed vital work that fully justifiedtheir commitment to Iraq's security. These combined operationsalso strengthened the ties between countries and improved thequality of interoperability between U.S. and coalition troops.Allied support played an important role in stabilizing the situationin Iraq.This short study also underscores the significant challengesthat U.S. Army planners faced in Iraqi Freedom in integratinga host of different military partners into U.S. operational plans.Similar issues of working together in a complex military environmentwill doubtless reoccur in future operations, but thebenefits of assembling such coalitions will almost certainly outweighthe problems. The United States cannot fight alone in the current operational environment, and improving the quantityand quality of our interaction with our international partnersshould continue to be a high priority. I commend this monographto today's Army to read, gain insight into such combinedoperations, and reflect on how much support our allies can providein future military endeavors. - Richard W. Stewart, Chief Historian, 30 September 2011
