16 Cases of Mission Command

16 Cases of Mission Command
As the Army moves forward with Mission Command as its command philosophy, Combat Studies Institute offers a new work titled “16 Cases of Mission Command.” This collection of historical cases seeks to sharpen Soldiers' understanding of the command doctrine by providing examples from the past in which Mission Command principles played a decisive role. Some cases show junior officers following their commander’s intent and exercising disciplined initiative in very chaotic combat operations.
