Intention – nödvändighet eller överflödigt?
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This essay aims to investigate the relevance of the theory Command Concepts in a modern conflict against an irregular opponent.
The research is conducted through a case study of the two battles of Fallujah, Operation Vigilant Resolve and Operation Phantom Fury/Al Fajr.
Through analysing the commander’s intent and the effect it has on the outcome of the battle the essay aims to provide a substitute for smaller nations that cannot afford a large investment in advanced military technology.
The essay concludes however that no definitive proof can be found that the commander’s intent is the sole solution to winning the battle and that a balanced approach with both significant training of commanders and technological investments is needed to be relevant in the future.
