  • Kautilya’s Arthasastra on War and Diplomacy in Ancient India

    • Political science -- India -- History -- To 324 B.C.
    Abstract:
      Kautilya was the key adviser to the Indian king Chandragupta Maurya (c. 317-293 B.C.E.), who first united the Indian subcontinent in empire. Written about 300 B.C.E., Kautilya's Arthasastra was a science of politics intended to teach a wise king how to govern. In this work, Kautilya offers wide-ranging and truly fascinating discussions on war and diplomacy, including his wish to have his king become a world conqueror, his analysis of which kingdoms are natural allies and which are inevitable enemies, his willingness to make treaties he knew he would break, his doctrine of silent war or a war of assassination against an unsuspecting king, his approval of secret agents who killed enemy leaders and sowed discord among them, his view of women as weapons of war, his use of religion and superstition to bolster his troops and demoralize enemy soldiers, the spread of disinformation, and his humane treatment of conquered soldiers and subjects.

  • From Berlin to Leipzig: Napoleon’s Gamble in North Germany, 1813

    • France. Armée. Grande Armée -- History.
    • France -- History, Military -- 1789-1815.
    • Napoleonic Wars, 1800-1815 -- Campaigns -- Germany.
    Abstract:
      This article examines Napoleon's desperate scramble in 1813 to preserve French dominance in Europe by closely scrutinizing his operations and strategy. Instead of concentrating his forces for a decisive showdown with the enemy's main force, Napoleon repeatedly detached large numbers of troops under ineffective commanders to capture the Prussian capital of Berlin. The heavy losses and strategic reverses sustained by the French in these questionable undertakings left Napoleon's Grande Armée vulnerable to the massive Allied coalition that would confront him at Leipzig. This study of French military operations in North Germany highlights the breakdown of Napoleonic strategy in 1813, and demonstrates that the Allied defense of Berlin in 1813 played a significant role in Napoleon's ultimate expulsion from Germany.

  • A Matter of Timing: The Royal Navy and the Tactics of Decisive Battle, 1912-1916
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Great Britain. Royal Navy -- History -- World War, 1914-1918.
    • Jutland, Battle of, 1916.
    • World War, 1914-1918 -- Naval operations.
    Abstract:
      In 1912, the Admiralty adopted a secret tactical system that was supposed to enable a British battle fleet to destroy a German opponent through five minutes shooting at medium range. The quick destruction of the Germans was to be followed by a simultaneous turn away by the British, which would counter the threat of enemy torpedoes. Belief in this scheme interfered with the development of equipment and methods suitable to battle fleet action that involved long range and maneuver while shooting, which set the stage for much that went wrong for the Royal Navy at the battle of Jutland.

  • Best-Laid Plans: Guy Simonds and Operation Totalize, 7-10 August 1944
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Simonds, Guy Granville, 1903-1974.
    • Operation Totalize, 1944.
    • Canada -- Armed Forces -- History -- World War, 1939-1945.
    Abstract:
      First Canadian Army's fighting fitness in the Battle of Normandy has long been a point of debate among military historians. Because Operation Totalize did not result in the early conclusion of the campaign, some suggest that the Canadians could have fought more effectively. Heavy air support was a crucial component in the plan for Totalize, but it has received insufficient attention from historians. A focus on the role of air power suggests that previous explanations for the operation's failure, and criticism of Guy Simonds's generalship, are in need of revision.

  • The 'Ology War: Technology and Ideology in the Vietnamese Defense of Hanoi, 1967
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • United States. Air Force -- History -- Vietnamese Conflict, 1961-1975.
    • Vietnamese Conflict, 1961-1975 -- Aerial operations, American.
    • Air defenses -- Vietnam -- History -- 1945-1975.
    Abstract:
      The American air campaign against Hanoi in 1967 pushed Vietnamese air defenses to the brink of disaster. By the spring of 1967, continued improvements in U.S. tactics and electronic warfare technology had rendered North Vietnam's SA-2 missiles and radar-controlled anti-aircraft guns virtually impotent against U.S. Air Force aircraft. The Vietnamese were able to rise from the ashes of this potential defeat through intense political indoctrination; research and training; adjustments in the missions and deployment of North Vietnam's missile, anti-aircraft, and fighter units; assistance from communist allies; and American hesitancy and miscalculation.

  • Desert One and Its Disorders

    Subject Headings:
    • Operation Desert Shield, 1990-1991.
    • Persian Gulf War, 1991 -- United States.
    • Special forces (Military science) -- United States -- History -- 20th century.
    Abstract:
      Desert One—largely a Special Forces operation—ended in abject failure and cost Jimmy Carter a second term as president. It was not only an organizational failure, due to a splintering of the U.S. armed forces, but a failure of political will and political appreciation. The U.S., confronted virtually for the first time with the new hostile force of Islamic fundamentalism, in the form of a devilish "soft war" scenario put together by Imam Khomeini and his lieutenants, reacted tentatively and with a certain propitiation. When five months later a hostage rescue operation was finally mounted, it was so conceived that the U.S. could call it off at any step along the way. Desert One turned out to be the defining moment that led to a sea-change in American military policy in the 1980s: the spread of the principle of joint operations for the U.S. armed forces (Goldwater-Nichols Act), and the companion Cohen-Nunn Act consolidating Special Forces under a U.S. Special Operations Command.
