Manöverkrigföring: en stagnerad eller utvecklad teori?
Swedish National Defence College.
2009 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [sv]

Manöverkrigföring är ett vedertaget begrepp inom militär teori. Jag har i denna uppsats valt att analysera och jämföra två operationer som baseras på manöverkrigföring.

Vid Tysklands invasion av Frankrike 1940, Fall Gelb, utgjorde manöverteorin grunden för operationen. Detta var första gången som manöverkrigföring utnyttjades i stor skala för att slå en jämbördig motståndare.

 I den USA-ledda FN-koalitionens invasion av Irak 1991, Desert Storm, var manöverkrigföring ännu en gång den operativa huvudteorin i planerna för operationen.

Den här uppsatsen är en komparativ fallstudie baserad på kvalitativ textanalys. Båda operationerna beskrivs för att sedan jämföras varvid skillnader och likheter belyses.

Resultatet visar att såväl Fall Gelb som Desert Storm genomfördes som operationer baserade på teorin om manöverkrigföring, men att stora skillnader finns mellan dessa operationer. Orsaken till skillnaderna belyses till del och vissa teorier om vad dessa beror på presenteras.

Abstract [en]

Maneuver warfare is a widely accepted term used in military theory. I have in this essay chosen to analyse and compare two operations that were based on maneuver warfare.

In Germany’s invasion of France in 1940, Fall Gelb, maneuver theory was used as a base for the operation. It was the first time maneuver warfare was used in large scale to defeat an equal opponent.

In the US led UN-coalitions invasion of Iraq in 1991, Desert Storm, maneuver warfare was once again the cornerstone in the planning of the operation.

 This essay is a comparative study based on qualitative text-analysis. Both operations are first described and then compared to one and other, and differences and similarities are shown.

The results show that both Fall Gelb and Desert Storm were fought based on the theory of maneuver warfare, but that large differences exist between the two operations. The reasons for these differences are not shown in detail, but some theories are presented.
