This is the first of two articles that considers the medical planning implications of large-scale defensive military operations. This paper considers the military context and planning factors that may require a medical plan that is different from that seen in recent counterinsurgency operations. The scale and complexity of the challenge is likely to require a greater level of decentralisation and a more sophisticated approach to medical planning at the strategic and operational levels.
