Iraqi bitzkrieg

Slightly East of New

[revised June 23, 2014] Are the ISIS forces using maneuver warfare tactics? Have they read John Boyd?

I don’t know the answer to either of these, but it seems to me that their tactics — multiple thrusts, use of time, ambiguity, deception, terror, propaganda — fit well within either MCDP1 or Patterns of Conflict.

One thought on “Iraqi bitzkrieg

  1. I wonder if the MICC has a stake in over-hyping the threat of ISIS for the purpose of finding a way to inflate its own budget.

    Ironic – the enemy helps you carry out a successful blitzkrieg.
