ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the major naval operations in the U.S. Major naval operations are considered as the principal methods of combat force employment by which operational or strategic objectives are accomplished in conventional high-intensity war at sea. The country's Navy and other major Western navies planned and executed major operations in World War II as part of maritime and land campaigns. They can considerably contribute to war shortening at sea.
