    Command Culture ePUB õ Ï PDF/EPUB airdomains.co command epub, culture ebok, Command Culture PDF/EPUBAn okay book providing a good overview of late 19th and early 20th century education models in the US and PrussianGerman armies but perhaps a bit too onerous in its conclusions The author seeks to understand why the US Army’s model of Officer education adapted in the late 19th century from the Prussian model did not “churn out” the same uality of tactical leaders during WWII that were seen in the German Army In this the author adopts a version of the “materialistic dominance” concept for the US victory that America won not because of her leaders but despite of them The author does point out that there were glimmers of professionalism in the US Army namely Fort Benning’s Infantry School under George Marshall and various senior leaders with decent performance whose character’s were strong enough to overcome an otherwise negative career education system But overall he paints a decrepit picture of the continuum of education in the US Army from West Point through

    Command Culture ePUB õ Ï PDF/EPUB airdomains.co command epub, culture ebok, 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

    Command Culture ePUB õ Ï PDF/EPUB airdomains.co command epub, culture ebok, 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 doctrine while leading from a tent far from the battle Where the German officer education system would resemble a liberal education the American officer education system revolved around rote memorizati

    Command Culture ePUB õ Ï PDF/EPUB airdomains.co command epub, culture ebok, 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
