Abstract : Three finite, two-person, zero-sum games involving no reconnaissance, one-sided reconnaissance and two-sided reconnaissance are presented as a game hierarchy. The games are tied to operational military concepts by extending normal utility theory to a 'military worth' function. Operational information is then derived from the game hierarchy. (Author)
