Transforming Command: The Pursuit of Mission Command in the U. S., British, and Israeli Armies

by Eitan Shamir

Shamir (Dado Center for Interdisciplinary Military Studies, Israeli Defense Forces, and security studies, Tel Aviv U., Israel) examines the experiences of the armed forces in the US, Israel, and Britain in adopting, adapting, and implementing mission command since the 1980s and the factors involved in their success or failure. He begins by discussing the theory and history of mission command and the traditions of these countries before they adopted it from the Prussian-Germany Army, then the factors involved in adoption, such as changes in warfare, education, training, and personnel policies; how mission command was adopted in theory and practice; similarities in uses; and recent operations and organizational practices.
