Title Influence without Boots on the Ground: Seaborne Crisis Response.
Publication Date Jan 2013
Media Count 340p
Personal Author L. Forster
Abstract The use of military force is not restricted to fighting; it can also be employed to shape and influence events.1 During the October Arab-Israeli War of 1973, neither superpower was directly engaged in the fighting, but both heavily supported their client states. The deployment of naval forces sent a strong signal, not only to the direct crisis participants but also to the other superpower. The Soviet navy initiated movements of assets into proximity of the crisis a couple of days before hostilities erupted. In direct reaction to the outbreak of the conflict on 5 October, the United States reinforced its Sixth Fleet and also moved vessels closer to the crisis location.
