Abstract : Analysis of need for combat leadership doctrine in the U.S. Navy. Review of existing literature with conclusion that current studies do not adequately address depth or breadth of topics that must be considered by Navy to properly address how it will develop combat leaders: (1) Difference between combat and non-combat leadership: (2) variation in leadership requirements by rank and position: (3) Are leadership requirements different in the U.S. Navy from those in any other service?: (4) Does leadership vary according to national and other cultural contexts: (4) Does leadership vary according to National and other cultural contexts: (5) Do leadership skills need to account for different cognitive preferences: and (6) do we need 'charismatic' leaders? The report then goes on to assess the problems of developing combat leaders in an era of a long peace. Specific improvements to existing methods of training combat leaders are then addressed, findings, conclusions, and recommendations include: (1) The need for Navy combat leadership case studies: (2) The need for supporting research: The development of a Navy combat leadership concept paper: (3) and the eventual development of Navy combat leadership doctrine.
