Auftragstaktik: We can't get there from here

The German tactical system was based on the assumption that well-trained subordinates were given their tasks, and they were competent to work out the best way for them to achieve the aim. The author looks at this method and examines why it proved problematic to institute the same system into the US Army. The paper is well worth reading for the examination of the German method as well as the reasons he gives for the failure to implement the system completely into the American forces.
