It consolidates FM 5-100, Engineer Operations, and FM 5-114, Engineer Operations Short of War, and more importantly, links Joint Publication (JP) 3-34, Engineer Doctrine for Joint Operations; JP 3-15, Joint Doctrine
for Barriers, Obstacles, and Mine Warfare; JP 4-04, Joint Doctrine
for Civil Engineering Support; and FM 3-0, Operations, to our manuals.
In the joint arena, Joint Publication (JP) 3-26, Joint Doctrine
for Homeland Security, published under the direction of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, provides the principles and doctrine to guide the armed forces in the conduct of HLS operations in joint, multinational, and interagency environments.

incorporates what the United States has agreed to follow in international law as well as operational best practices.
This is the first Army operations manual to complement joint doctrine
Army Engineer School and TRADOC are revising the Army doctrine hierarchy and numbering system to be more in line with the Joint doctrine
hierarchy and numbering system.
Accompanying three book reviews, our Joint Doctrine
section comprises three important issues: robots, food security, and joint planning.
Current Air Force and joint doctrine
governing war fighting in cyberspace is scarce.
