Abstract : Controversy continues to swirl around the organization and employment of the light division. This paper examines the fire support available to the division. Historical examples of employments of light forces in the Falklands and Grenada are examined for lessons learned. The emphasis to fight as a combined arms team is again validated. The value of fire support in the assault echelon of a light division is particularly critical to the success of the operation. This paper examines the types of fire support with emphasis on artillery.
