Military Doctrine is the fundamental principles by which military forces guide their actions in support of national objectives. It is authoritative but requires judgement in its application. Derived from a mixture of operational experience, observation and applied thought, doctrine is general in nature and describes fundamentals, principles and preconditions of military operations at the different operational levels.
