Welcome to The Forge doctrine page.

This page provides enhanced access to selected unclassified doctrine that would normally only be accessible through the Defence Restricted Network (DRN).

Please note. The ADF Doctrine Library is the single repository of doctrinal knowledge within Defence. Under CDF's direction doctrine has been unified under one hierarchy and in one repository; One Defence, One Doctrine.

Defence personnel should access doctrine through the ADF Doctrine Library as the single source of truth. Whilst all reasonable attempts are made to ensure doctrine available on the Forge is current, it cannot be guaranteed.
