    PDF/EPUB buyprobolan50.co æ Command Culture MOBI Ú command book, culture download, Command Culture PDF/EPUBThis book is a cautionary tale about the dangers of converting PhD dissertations into books Muth whose native tongue is German takes on a worthy topic but his committee which was probably not conversant in military history lets him down Similarly his publisher the same university could have sprung for a good copy editor with salutary effect Whether he wrote in German and suffered from a poor translator or he wrote in English using German idiom and structure the result is disappointing Paragraphs often begin with an excellent thematic sentence and end with perplexing non seuiturs A pity because Muth goes where most angels fear to tread and asks how the world's most notorious totalitarian regime could produce a command philosophy Auftragstaktik that granted unprecedent

    PDF/EPUB buyprobolan50.co æ Command Culture MOBI Ú command book, culture download, Command Culture PDF/EPUBIn this fascinating book Muth presents a relentless attack on the US Army's system of officer education constantly contrasting it negatively with the euivalent approaches in the German ArmyIn essence Muth argues that the system at both West Point and similar officer cadet institutions such as VMI and Fort Leavenworth was based on the twin beliefs that the best education for officers was through a mathematical engineering paradigm coupled with rigid peer discipline and total submission to hierarchy This led to a reliance on rote learning of 'school solutions' with any alternative solution to a problem being by definition incorrect and vicious 'hazing' of junior cadets by their seniors This reliance on rote learning led to there being minimal pressure for instructors to be experts in their subjects or for the syllabus to reflect modern trends in warfareMuth contrasts this model with the cadet schools

    PDF/EPUB buyprobolan50.co æ Command Culture MOBI Ú command book, culture download, Command Culture PDF/EPUBOver the course of six chapters the author makes the argument that prior to WWII Germany had a superior system of education for it's army officers a system that resulted in true leaders who were taught to think creatively improvise and lead from the front By contrast the author details how the American army officer education system was mired in a stiff legacy that expected army officers to 'manage' their subordinates and adhere to strict

    PDF/EPUB buyprobolan50.co æ Command Culture MOBI Ú command book, culture download, Command Culture PDF/EPUBIn some ways a rather odd and polemical work as the author examines the ways in which the US Army tried to apply what they thought the Prussian army had to teach about officer development and mostly got it wrong Muth who professes a great admiration for American arms makes the old structures of hazing at West Point his prime target and essentially argues that the inmates had taken over the asylum comparing this to the German system of schools that found positive ways of inculcating character and building group identity From there Muth further goes on to demonstrate how for the German company and field grade officer military education was a continuing
