Task Force


(1) A temporary consolidation of troops along a specific operational axis fulfilling the same operational mission. Depending on the situation and nature of the mission, the task force may include several large and small units and various means of reinforcement. During the Great Patriotic War (1941–45), task forces were formed during operations on broad fronts and in difficult terrain where the conditions of the situation complicated organization and maintenance of control and coordination among different groupings operating on different axes.

(2) Liaison party, a group of officers with means of communication who are sent to neighboring forces or staffs to maintain coordination with them or to subordinate units to direct certain groupings of forces.
