Operation Kutuzov

Know Your WW2 History.

Weapons and Warfare

The direct aspect of that development began on July 11. It involved a still-overlooked operation that is arguably better evidence of the Red Army’s progress than the so frequently cited battle to the south. When all is said and done, Kursk, seen from a Russian perspective, was a traditional Russian battle. Echoing Zorndorf and Kunersdorf, Friedland and Borodino, it was a test of endurance intended to enable the Red Army to begin setting the pace. Operation Kutuzov, the assault on the German-held salient that began on July 12, was something fundamentally different.

The German and the Russian ways of war approached operational art from opposite directions. The Prussian/German army had developed its version of operational art as a response to the constraining of campaign-level tactics in an age of mass armies. The Russians came to it through a developing understanding of how Russia’s vast spaces could complement the metastasizing armies…

Violence of Action. Making fast decisions, getting off the X quickly, and fixing and flanking their enemy were all critical to the success of these men. Violence of action is the difference between life and death in a fight. The following two videos are excellent depictions of fire and maneuver, a topic among many we will be covering in the Fieldcraft Course.

This first video is squad size fire and maneuver done correctly. Note how Lt. Winters deploys his men into two groups, one as a base of fire, and one as a flanking element. That is text book stuff there. But also note as the assault develops these elements begin firing and maneuvering on their own as well, using their own individual initiative to assault the enemy when they felt it was the right time. They didn’t pause and wait for orders, just kept up the momentum and pressed…

The Invisible Drug Lord: Hunting the Ghost

For over a decade now I have been researching and studying how 21st century drug cartels and organized crime syndicates operate.

I do this mainly for two reasons:

  1. Research for my writing

  2. Considering freedom loving guerillas/partisans have always (and are currently) seen as criminals (ie domestic terrorist) anyway, observing the TTP of ‘successful’ criminal groups, both past and present is a no-brainer.

If you take one thing away from this study it should be this:
