There are numerous interrelationships between joint operations, maritime theaters, operational or campaign planning, and combat. This thesis is an analysis of the British Turkish campaign of 1915, the German Norwegian campaign in 1940, and the U. S. Korean campaign in 1950 to discover some of these interrelationships. For each campaign, the nation's joint service organization and strategic rationale is discussed in order to show its influence on operational planning. The plan for each of the campaigns is then presented, and compared to the actual combat which occurred during the execution of the plan. The analysis emphasizes two important purposes of the operation plan. First, the operational plan organizes means, space, and time in order to coordinate the actions of the (joint) forces available. Second, the operational plan communicates the intent of the operation to subordinates.
