During World War I, warfare underwent a significant shift. The biggest change in military technology and strategy at the time was heralded by it.

But it also brought forth the toughest challenges to military operations to date. The disparity in weapons and agility on the battlefields of World War I created issues.

The Mahanian Theory of force projection is essential for naval strategy. A sizable naval force is depicted as an effective winning tactic. Battleships exist together with all the associated equipment and weaponry.

The United States Navy used this idea of force projection to build a powerful fleet in the nineteenth century. The main location for this fleet's deployment was the aircraft carrier.

The Mahanian Theory's primary assumption was the emphasis on water control. It argued that the ability of individual countries to control their own entry into international markets was crucial.

According to the Mahanian Theory, a country's capacity to trade with other nations and get access to their natural resources strongly correlates with its potential to achieve economic prosperity. The nation's defenses against other nations shutting off its access were another crucial component of the concept.

For the study of force projection, the idea of force concentration is crucial. Land, air, and naval power must be integrated in order to produce overwhelming combat might at the critical moment.

This analysis of Carl von Clausewitz, Baron de Jomini, and Sun Tzu's writings is concentrated on air and naval operations. It also compares two Pacific Theater operations during World War II to the land-based ideologies of these authors.

Naval warfare gave rise to the idea of concentrating forces at chokepoints for quick reaction and information gathering, but it may be applied to other domains with scattered forces as well. This concept was initially put out by Sir Julian Corbett in his 1911 book Some Principles of Maritime Strategy.

The Creeping Barrage hypothesis is one force projection hypothesis that helps to explain why artillery fire was used to attack enemy lines during World War I. It was a strategy created to deal with problems caused by the considerable delay in infantry receiving artillery fire.

The biggest problem was overcoming the Germans' powerful bunkers, which they had built and reinforced. They had time to hide and defend their positions between the bombardment and the soldiers' real onslaught.

To address this threat, the British and American soldiers devised the "creeping barrage" method. Every several minutes, the artillery fire would advance modestly, frequently by 50–100 yards.

The bombardment would stop when it reached the next target and stay motionless after that. As the troops moved forward, this would stop the defenders from mounting a counterattack.

The Defensive Counterattack Theory, a theory of force projection, is based on the idea that defenders use a variety of strategies and tactics to stop adversary advances. According to the notion, if a defender can prevent an attacker from breaching their defense, the attacker would be forced to spend more time doing so, providing the defender a greater vantage point from which to launch an attack.

One strategy for reaching this objective is a rest-defense structure. Three players are typically kept in back against two attackers when defending.

By intercepting transitional outlet passes, the defense may better stop breakouts when it adopts a deeper, more compact stance. However, it fails to take into consideration the possibility that teams may still come up with ways to dodge the media. The dangerous counterattacking teams of World War I strategically used their wingers to get away from the early counterpress.
