Asymmetry is a United States Army doctrinal term. Research indicates that soldiers have a poor appreciation of asymmetry. The concept is often overused or just misused altogether. The cause for this is likely the doctrine itself. The primary Army definition is too encompassing, if not divergent. This monograph builds from prior research to establish the principles of asymmetry. The ultimate goal of producing principles should allow soldiers to better appreciate a difficult, but important concept in warfare. The expanded purpose will lead to an increased probability that US Army forces will prevail in war. Appendix D to this monograph provides a summary of the four principles developed.
