Oktoberkriget 1973: En studie i Gemensamma operationers inverkan på manöverkrigföring
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The Case study focuses on the Yom Kippur war of 1973 in order to find potential friction between maneuver warfare and combined arms warfare when used in the same context. The war demonstrated how against all odds a small state could retake the initiative and change the outcome of war to its own advantage. Israel achieved success by trying to combine these two methods but also by realizing the friction of them. What circumstances determine how well these two warfare methods function when incorporated in a context?
The purpose of the case study is to find factors which may give rise to friction when combining these two ways of conducting warfare. Is there evidence for a bond that only can be perfectly met when under the right circumstances
The result of the case study indicates that friction between these two methods limits the ability to achieve maneuver warfare unless these frictions are dealt with. Combined arms warfare must increase the effectivness of the force above its individual components in order to complement the maneuver warfare.
