Abstract : The history of U.S. military operations in the Twentieth Century has been a story of coalition warfare. The century opened with participation of the United States Army in the China Relief Expedition. That brief introduction to combined operations was soon followed by American participation as an essential, if junior, partner in the First World War. And before the mid-century point was reached, the United States assumed a position of leadership as one of the three major partners in the greatest coalition war of all time, the Second World War, after which the conduct of warfare as a member of a coalition came to be viewed as the norm rather than as an exception to America's traditional isolation in international politics and military affairs. Today, the United States is currently a party to six treaties that commit us to the defense of 41 countries. In the event of war, this network of foreign alliances, and the possible creation of others, makes it highly likely that military operations will be conducted by forces of two or more allied nations acting together for accomplishment of a single mission.
