The corporal who will win the war

I've just returned from a most inspiring lecture by Sir Jack Deverell, former commander of Nato's headquarter in Europe SHAPE.

He was talking about the doctrinal differences between US and UK. And he introduced a concept that I hadn't been aware of before: the three block war - the concept that the modern soldier can run into three forms of missions litteraly on the same city-street.

This again means that the Corporal becomes the most important strategic soldier. A long explanation needed here, but it will have to wait.

This suddenly puts a new light on some of my Danish officer buddies's longing for a professional army.
