Abstract : This monograph investigates two key periods of change in the role of the corps artillery. The key change agents examined are peacetime doctrinal development and combat experience. THe comparison of these periods, first, during the development of AirLand Battle doctrine and, second, during World War II shows the U.S. Army's and Field Artillery's ability to change in both peace and war. Section II examines the role of the corps artillery in Airland Battle doctrine. This section traces the evolution of operational concepts that began in 1977 and led to the adoption of the 1982 version of Field Manual 100-5, Operations. Included is a review of the Central Battle, the Integrated Battlefield, the Extended Battlefield, and Corps 86. Finally, this section focuses on the AirLand Battle's tenet of synchronization. Keywords: Corps artillery, airland battle, synchronization, doctrinal development, field artillery.
