The application of the “Holy Trinity” provides military historians with a framework to create a holistic view of wartime activities. Analysis of the Trinity on an engagement, military historians are able to narrow down the events that occurred and develop a comprehensive understanding of any wartime engagement. Disputing the influence of the Trinity on a battle aids in further developing the understanding of war and can assist in the development of future military strategy. Through the examination of psychological and physical characteristics as they apply to battle, a case study approach utilizing the Trinity framework provides new depth to the understanding of the art and science of war. Therefore, in order to fully understand how morale and psychological variances effect the Trinity, military historians should examine battles with profound psychological ramifications.
This paper will discuss how decisions are made on determining primary and alternate tasks for completion based upon the identified mission. Balancing the basic skills for Soldiers for survival in wartime situations as well as performing a specific job as efficiently as possible while keeping the ever changing mission in mind is a challenging task. However, upon identification of the critical tasks, a list called the Mission-Essential Task List (METL) can be produced.

He understood that any unnecessary confrontation on Mosul’s streets could lead to potential strategic consequences. For this reason, MG Petraeus created a concept that he called, “strategic corporal”, which means, decrease potential strategic consequences in those scenarios in which Soldiers must take snap decisions that could lead to firefight. By placing papers at the forward operating base (FOB) command post, and other strategic places, with questions such as, “What have you and your elements done today to contribute to victory? What have you done to win an Iraqi hearts and minds today?” MG Petraeus assured that every Soldier thought twice before they acted.
Exercises become to distinguish in among other things: field exercises; common exercises (national and international) exercises differently than those which has been intended for preparation to armed conflict for example: -Peace operations and humanitarian operations; -Simulation which serves for the promotion of the flexibility and the speed of decision-making which can be reviewed by means of alternatives.
