Martin van Creveld: En bortglömd teori om manöverkrigföring?
Swedish Defence University.
2017 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Maneuver warfare is a multifaceted subject in debates and discussions. However, there is a lack of scientific studies on the subject. Martin van Creveld is one of the theorists who have produced a theory for maneuver warfare, without being questioned either in debates or scienetific research.  

The purpose of this paper is therefore to contribute to the research of Martin van Creveld's theory, by testing his theory and warfare principles on two empirical cases. Through this, conclusions can be drawn wether his theory could contribute with an explaination to the outcome of the cases. 

The result has shown that the theory could explain the outcome of one of the cases, while the second case achieved the desired outcome by using only three of the total six principles. It is also shown that this study is too insufficient to falsify Martin van Creveld's theory and principles of maneuver warfare. More studies are required on more empirical cases in order to draw such conclusions. Though, this study has contributed to a new subject within the studies of war and maneuver warfare.
