THEORIES OF WAR: COMPETING OR COMPLEMENTARY

For at least two decades manoeuvre warfare theory has dominated Western military doctrine. In recent years it has suffered criticism, especially observing the attrition-soaked fields of the Russo-Ukraine war. Is a binary distinction between these two theories factual or even worthwhile?

Info sull'evento

Amos Fox Ph.D. is a retired Lt Col in the US Army who has written extensively on war, tactics, technology, strategy and the theories of warfare. In his podcast 'The Revolution of Military Affairs' he addresses many contemporary topics including concerns around the 'death of manoeuvre' and dominance of attrition battles that the West appears ill prepared for. In this webinar he will unpack the three dominant theories of warfare: Attritional, Positional, and Manoeuvre based approaches. Using contemporary examples he will explore how each of these theories is holding up to scrutiny, and what that says about our fascination with a single dominant theory instead of a more holistic approach.

What is in it for me? 

1. What is the difference between Attritional, Positional and Manoeuvre Warfare in a contemporary context?

2. Is manoeuvre dead? Has Attrition become the dominant theory? Where does positional warfare fit in all this?

3. How should modern militaries theorise about warfare to avoid mental blocks?
