This thesis is a primer for a combat analysis course for Joint Command, Control and Communications students at the Naval Postgraduate School. It provides a single document which ties together the key concepts of combat modeling and analysis. The thesis introduces various aspects of combat models and illustrates many of their functions, applications and results with examples. Areas included in the primer are: combat theory and the relationship of command and control within that theory, modeling techniques, measures of effectiveness, attrition models, other forms of non-attrition analysis and examples of models currently in use. The thesis introduces basic concepts and identifies readings from which those concepts were extracted. It does not teach students to develop combat models, although it gives insight into how the application affects proper model selection.
