This Wired article has implications for a successful military.
If better information flow is the unofficial one, if dropping rules in favor of successful improvised doctrine is better, then maybe that’s why sometimes that works more effectively in the age of the “strategic corporal”. Nelson’s method of commanding his captains may be more useful at the level of the iron major.
Update: I wanted to get the post out but was entirely too shallow in my analysis. There’s good stuff to pull from analogy and analysis, but I didn’t do that here (more than spew key words and tricky phrases). Can’t do that today, though. Comments have some good observations as well.
