Search: four levels intelligence analysis


Although the search works, it’s such an important line of inquiry that we’ve decided to create this direct post.  Thank you for seeking this.  Credit first:  Edward N. Luttwak’s brilliant Strategy–The Logic of War and Peace, Revised and Enlarged Edition was the first effort to not just distinguish between the four levels of analysis (strategic, operational, tactical, and technical) but to show how capabilities at different levels that might be insufficient on their own (e.g. a man-held bazooka against tanks at the tactical level) actually created a coherent whole when combined with capabilities at others levels (artillery, aviation, fuel interdiction).

Here is a clean short list responsive to your search, aided by the human in the loop:
