Muth examines the different paths the United States Army and the German Armed Forces traveled to select, educate, and promote their officers in the crucial time before World War II. He demonstrates that the military education system in Germany represented an organized effort where each school provided the stepping stone for the next. But in the US, there existed no communication about teaching contents among the various schools.

The IX Corps of the British Mediterranean Expeditionary Force (MEF) achieved a complete tactical surprise of the Turkish defenders with its landing on 6 August 1915. Yet, despite a huge superiority in resources and a ten-to-one advantage in men, the IX Corps failed to obtain its planned objectives. This study examines the extent that the outcome of the British failure was influenced by the prevalent British Army command culture. The British Army command culture of 1916 was directly linked to its past as a colonial police force. Although well suited for that role, it was unable to effectively deal with the changes in warfare and the rapidly expanding sizes of armies in 1916. The British command culture of the time consisted a personalized system that exercised a reliance on a system of seniority, a hands-off method of command at the senior and operational levels, and a restrictive method of control at the tactical level.

Military Culture And Mission Command Auftragstaktik

The purpose of the current thesis was to examine the adoption and adaptation process of mission command (Auftragstaktik) in modem military organizations. This concept denotes a system wherein superiors dictate their intent and allow subordinates to formulate their operational plans independently. The research first examined organizational theory's perspective on this system and then traced its origins in the historic Prussian-German army. Having established a yardstick for comparison, the research investigated the American, British and Israeli armies which have endeavoured to emulate the system. While all three have officially incorporated mission command into doctrine and training, they have been less successful in utilizing it in operational situations. It was found that the gap was due partially to ongoing transformations in military affairs such as the Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA) and the spread of low-intensity conflicts and operations other than war. A comparison between the three case-studies also demonstrated how different military cultures interpret, articulate and exercise mission command. -- The research focused on questions such as: Why was the adoption of mission command more successful in some cases? What variants of mission command have developed in the adaptation process? How does command and control technology impact mission command? What are the cultural factors that create the gap between doctrine and behaviour? What is the impact of mission command on a host culture? Having examined these questions, the thesis illustrated how military cultures affect the adoption of innovative but foreign concepts promising to increase operational capabilities.

This book will advance the understanding of leadership beyond the inherited myths and modalities of command and control. Leadership is separated from ideas and institutional seniority and explained as the collaborative power of one with others. Enabling the intelligent co-participation of all people, the constructive effect of this approach to leadership is in the engagement of people. This is significant when task accomplishment depends not on managerial direction, but on the interaction of people with each other, with technical systems, and with complex regulations which are often across jurisdictional boundaries. Examples and case studies are included.
