Publication Date May 2012
Media Count 47p
Personal Author D. C. Benfield
Abstract The majority of the literature on maneuver warfare begins with an examination of German 'stormtrooper' tactics of World War I or the German blitzkrieg campaigns of World War II. Soviet deep maneuver campaigns and Israeli campaigns of the last half century also are frequently referenced. This monograph explores the utility of considering Mongol military campaigns of the 13th Century in the corpus of maneuver warfare examples. In particular, the monograph explores a number of aspects of maneuver warfare stressed by Marine Corps Doctrinal Publication 1 (MCDP-1, originally published as Fleet Marine Force Manual 1) in the context of Genghis Khan's campaign against the Khwarazam Empire in the early 13th Century.
