The U.S. Strategic Culture Influences on a Military Doctrine : an Analysis of the FM 1 (English)
Abstract [sv]

I denna uppsats prövas orsakssambandet mellan USA:s militärstrategiska kultur och dess armédoktrin FM 1 (Field Manual 1). Syftet är att påvisa i vilken grad som den militärstrategiska kulturen påverkat utformningen av doktrinen och om detta element kan sägas utgöra en självklar grund till doktrinens kontext. I uppsatsen förklaras den strategiska kulturens innebörd, bland annat utifrån Colin S. Grays tes. Denna tes utgör sedermera uppsatsens teoriansats. Utifrån teorin skapas indikatorer för att genom en kvalitativ textanalys avgöra graden av överensstämmelse mellan den strategiska kulturen och doktrinen. Studiens resultat visar att USA:s armédoktrin endast har viss grad av överensstämmelse med dess militärstrategiska kultur. Detta beror bland annat på att armén anpassats efter rådande hotbild i mycket hög takt, efter terrorattentaten mot World Trade Center den elfte september 2001.

Abstract [en]

This thesis examines the causal relationship between the U.S. military's strategic culture and its Army doctrine FM 1 (Field Manual 1). The aim is to demonstrate the degree to which the military strategic culture influenced the development of the doctrine and whether this element can be said to constitute a natural basis for a doctrine context. The paper explains the significance of strategic culture, in particular from Colin S. Gray's theory. This theory is later used as the essay theory approach. Based on the theory, indicators will be created and used for a qualitative text analysis, in order to determine the degree of correlation between strategic culture and the doctrine. Study findings show that U.S. Army doctrine only has a certain degree of compliance with its military strategic culture and that this in particular depends on the army’s very high rate of adaptation to current threats, after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001.
