Detail

Army Doctrine Publication (ADP) Operations is the primary source of UK higher-level tactical doctrine for the land operating environment and is the capstone doctrine for the British Army.

It is based on ADP Land Operations (2005), updated to reflect experience from operations, new joint and allied doctrine and contemporary understanding of the enduring nature and evolving character of conflict.

ADP Operations is aimed primarily at British Army sub-unit, unit and formation commanders, and staffs at each level, although all officers (commissioned and non-commissioned) are required to have a working knowledge of it and to explain it to their subordinates.

It has utility for the Royal Marines and the RAF Regiment.
