Abstract : Battle Command-the exercise of leadership in combat. Will technology lead military thinkers to reconsider existing notions of battle command? In this section, authors reflect on 21st-century combat leadership. Major General Russel L. Honore examines two integrated leadership models under specific conditions of METT-TC. Lieutenant Colonel Marc LeGare explores how the Army's current digital command and control systems are creating new ways for commanders to visualize the status of units, to formulate course of action, and to articulate intent and issue guidance. Colonel James K. Greer delivers an articulate discussion about emerging operational doctrine for the Objective Force. Lieutenant Colonel Scott R. McMichael concludes with a startlingly realistic picture of what technologically enhanced warfighting could look like. Yet, despite technology's influence, war remains a particularly human endeavor. Major General Werner Widder argues that the critical ingredient for success on the tomorrow's battlefield remains the solider exercising judgment at the critical time and place in accordance with the commander's intent.
