Capture of Okinawa and other positions in the Ryukyus gave the Allies both air and naval bases within easy striking distance of Japan. Whereas Jomini's theories had influence in France and North America, Clausewitz's teachings in particular were influential on the great Prussian military strategists of the 19th century, Helmuth von Moltke — architect of victory in the Franco-Prussian War — and Alfred von Schlieffen — creator of the Schlieffen plan defense against Russia and envelopment of Francewhich Germany applied in a modified form at the beginning of World War I.
Whenever practicable, small forces occupied neighboring islands as sites for land-based artillery. With this method, there were only four separate carrier groups, making the entire carrier force much easier to control while the effective anti-aircraft protection made them safe from enemy attack.

The immense destructive nature of these weapons, however, meant that warfare of limited strategic goals, using conventional tactics and conventional but technologically advanced weapons, would predominate in the "limited" wars that followed World War II.
The envelopment is a maneuver in which a secondary attack attempts to hold the enemy's center while one single envelopment or both flanks double envelopment of the enemy are attacked or overlapped in a push to the enemy's rear in order to threaten the enemy's communications and line of retreat.

The U.S. has been the main donor of weapons to the country since the invasion. Iran’s open provision of weapons and equipment to Iraqi forces is in part an attempt to supplant this influence. The U.S.
has switched to “annihilation tactics” against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, surrounding fighters instead of moving them from one spot to another, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said.
Direct U.S. strikes against the Huthi/Saleh bloc or increased U.S.
