This strategy research project defines hybrid threats, examines the emergence of hybrid warfare, postulates reasons why hybrid warfare will be the dominant form of warfare that most sovereigns will apply in the twenty-first century, and analyzes U.S. Joint and Service hybrid warfare doctrine.

The U.S. Army War College student author then recommends changes in strategy and doctrine to ensure the US military is prepared to counter this dangerous, growing threat for the next 25 years.
