Hur kan liten besegra stor?: En teoriprövande studie av en sekvensbaserad modell sprungen ur manöverkrigföring

Abstract [en]

Even though most of the world’s countries are considered to be small states and their armed forces are smaller relative to some of their neighbours, a surprisingly small amount of research has been found on how a smaller force can achieve tactical success against an opponent with superior material resources. That said examples of such tactical success can be found through history.

The purpose of this study is to test the Ideal Sequenced Model conceived by Professor Peter Thunholm and Lars Henåker in order to examine whether the model can contribute to an increased understanding of how an inferior force, in terms of resources, can achieve tactical success in combat.

The model which is derived from theories about maneuver warfare is tested against empirical material through a case study design.The result of the analysis shows a high degree of connection between the German successes during the battle of Sedan and the ideal sequenced model.
