Peter Dean and Ken Gleiman’s recent paper Beyond 2017: the Australian Defence Force and amphibious warfare is undoubtedly timely: first, because policy that will shape important decisions to be made within the ADF is expected in the form of the Defence White Paper; and second, due to the amphibious capability approaching operational certification. Also welcome are contributions here on The Strategist by Albert Palazzo and Michael Clifford. Fundamentally, both argue that policymakers must decide what the amphibious capability should look like. Equally, they allude to the implicit uncertainty with regards to the way in which the ADF will ultimately operate the big ships.
