The preceding chapters have demonstrated that American joint land–sea operations, and in particular amphibious assaults, did not originate in the 20th century as the U.S. Marine Corps prepared for war in the Pacific. Still, there was little formal study of U.S. combined operations doctrine and methodology prior to the landing on Guadalcanal in August 1942. This oversight is unfortunate, because to some degree every major American war has witnessed a measure of army–navy cooperation. The chapters in this volume show that there was ample precedent for the massive amphibious operations of 1942–5, but there were also numerous antecedents for the combined operations of the Civil War era.
