Maneuver warfare, often controversial and requiring operational and tactical innovation, poses perhaps the most important doctrinal questions currently facing the conventional military forces of the U.S. Its purpose is to defeat the enemy by disrupting the opponent's ability to react, rather than by physical destruction of forces. This book develops and explains the theory of maneuver warfare and offers specific tactical, operational, and organizational recommendations for improving ground combat forces. The authors translate concepts—too often vaguely stated by manuever warfare advocates—into concrete doctrine. Although the book uses the Marine Corps as a model, the concepts, tactics, and doctrine discussed apply to any ground combat force.

The largest land battles ever to occur on the North American continent outside of the US Civil War took place during the Mexican Revolution, yet there has never been any scholarship approaching what might be called traditional military history, and certainly no monographs that holistically treat the topics of tactics, operations, and strategy--until now. While a common perception of the Mexican Revolution as a guerrilla war persists, author Joe Lee Janssens draws on access to the restricted archives of the Mexican Secretary of Defense and the use of long-overlooked primary sources to illuminate a scope, scale, and sophistication of operations that is in every way consistent with maneuver warfare. Covering the rise and fall of Francisco Madero from 1910 to the beginning of 1913, this first book in a fascinating series offers a fresh view of the Mexican Revolution, revealing it as, first and foremost, a crisis within the defense establishment initiated by Madero's rebellion.Introducing colorful actors, putting motives and influences (including that of the United States) into proper perspective, and exploring the role of the conflict in shaping the nation of Mexico, Dr. Janssens brings history vividly to life.

Battles of the Ugandan Resistance: A Tradition of Maneuver offers an African viewpoint on an important epoch in the military history of Uganda. The book investigates the technical aspects of a number of key battles of the Ugandan resistance war, but also presents a brief but penetrating examination of the history of warfare on the African continent. By means of detailed analysis of key battles of the resistance war the author develops a powerful case for the adoption of a 'maneuverist' approach to military operations. The book examines the four phases of the Ugandan resistance war. These are: the clandestine phase; guerrilla warfare phase; mobile warfare phase and conventional warfare phase. It focuses on a number of key battles within each of these phases and analyses them. The book ends with a lofty examination of the strategy of the resistance war and with recommendations of a doctrinal nature.

An essential part of the Air War College, Maxwell Air Force Base (AFB), Alabama, curriculum consists of the study of military history and specific campaigns. Distinguished military scholars often visit the college to discuss and explore issues with the faculty. Martin van Creveld was one of those distinguished scholars. He had previously been commissioned by the Air Staff to investigate the effects of the US Army’s move toward a more maneuver-oriented kind of warfare and the effect that move will have on the US Air Force role on the battlefield. The Air Staff was concerned about a host of issues: logistic support for a highly mobile force; friendly force confusion on huge, rapidly changing battlefields; close air support with or without air base support; and a host of other issues. The bottom line for the Air Force concerned several issues of great impact. First, Must air combat change because land combat is changing? and, Is the decisiveness of air power increasing geometrically to the point where the twenty-first century will find it is as decisive as ground power was in the twentieth century? Our guest historian agrees that sophisticated, highly technical air and space developments may have made air power dominant on the conventional battlefield. The great exception, however, lies in the trend away from conventional to unconventional conflict. To Professor van Creveld, nation-states have lost the monopoly on the legitimate use of violence. To prepare for a conventional scenario is to prepare for the last war, not the next one. The possibility of more “Lebanons” is much higher than the likelihood of future “Iraqs.”

By the end of 1914 the Federal Army had been destroyed and the nation was fully mobilized for war. The Revolution Triumphant failed to agree upon a national agenda at the Convention of Aguascalientes and experienced a schism along sectional lines that bore a striking resemblance to the U.S. Civil War. The industrial Northeast and maritime regions joined the Northwest to defeat a powerful military-agricultural complex. In the ensuing campaigns of 1915, Conventionists and Constitutionalists ranged far and wide, fighting battles such as Celaya, El Ébano, and Trinidad, the largest ever to occur on the North American continent outside of the U.S. Civil War. A war effort of such epic scope, scale, sophistication, and speed of operations demanded the greatest attentions of Grand Strategy, and in its wake left the Constitutionalist Army with the institutional rigor necessary for governing. Part 2 recounts the Death of Villa¿s Army of the North, and with it the last of the great Military-Agricultural Complexes of North America.

Genghis Khan was one of the most feared and admired leaders of his time. He created a Mongol military might that was superior to any other he faced. The Mongols, under the leadership of Genghis Khan and his successors, overran most of Asia and Eastern Europe, and defeated virtually every army thrown against them. His armies were so well trained and led that they were incomparably superior to their opponents in China, Russia, Persia, and Eastern Europe. Genghis Khan developed a military system that focused on rapid, decisive maneuver, utilizing the skill and endurance of the Mongol horsemen. His principles of operational maneuver, command and control, deception, and precise battlefield tactics were substantially superior to those of his enemies. His campaigns were brilliant, and showcased his military genius and established standards for maneuver warfare, brutality, and human endurance never before seen. No other army since then has achieved the remarkable results that Genghis Khan and his armies did. This study identifies and analyzes the Mongol army's organization and training, its tactics and strategy, and its brilliant execution of maneuver warfare during its campaign in Eastern Europe. The superior leadership, discipline, and mobility of the Mongol Army offer several valuable lessons on maneuver warfare from the 12th and 13th centuries.

The Israel Defense Forces have gained much experience against hybrid opponents--Hezbollah and Hamas--in recent conflicts in Lebanon and Gaza. The lessons from these experiences are relevant to understanding the capabilities the U.S. Army and the joint force will require in the future. Principal findings highlight the importance of combined arms fire and maneuver; precision, standoff fires; responsive air and artillery support; and heavy forces.
