By War on the Rocks

"Regardless of era, before active armed combat begins in a battlespace, commanders often have a voracious appetite for information, mostly to shape or prepare the environment for the future success of both non-lethal and lethal activities. These activities can range from information operations to surgical strikes. Today, operations that support preparation of the environment are often commanded and controlled out of modern command posts or joint operations centers. However, in the years leading up to the American Revolution, many of the patriot operations supporting preparation of the environment were planned in, and executed from New England’s taverns."
