Description

This book explores the topic of operational maneuver by addressing the following research question: What are the characteristics of successful operational maneuver? The book uses a combination of descriptive research and case studies to answer the question. First, it uses descriptive research to analyze current AirLand Battle doctrine to identify potential characteristics of successful operational maneuver. The analysis of doctrine reveals two characteristics, mass and offensive action, for further examination. Second, the study uses case study analysis to examine mass and offensive action in four case studies. The book concludes that mass and offensive action are the primary characteristics of operational maneuver. Their development in operational art depends, however, on the existence of corollary concepts that assist in overall development of the characteristic. The work identifies two generalizations that will influence future operational maneuver. They are political influence and leadership.show more
