224 – The Theory and Practice of Command in the British and German Armies

  1. 224 - The Theory and Practice of Command in the British and German Armies Angus Wallace 1:04:52

In this podcast episode, we will discuss the different approaches to command and control of the British Army and the German Army. From a management point of view, both organisations developed different doctrines to deal with the ‘fog of war’ or ‘friction’, which affected how commanders responded as a battle unfolded.

We’ll do this by delving into the origins of each nation’s different approaches to doctrine and training and, most importantly, how these strategies played out during the pivotal Battle for France in 1940.

Joining me today is Martin Samuels.

Martin is the author of Piercing the Fog of War: The Theory and Practice of Command in the British and German Armies, 1918-1940, which builds upon his early work Command or Control? Command, Training and Tactics in the British and German Armies, 1888-1918.
