Abstract:

Military Commanders have fought in both the Victorio Campaign and the Philippine War. During both conflicts, the U.S. Army was facing guerrilla warfare and commanders changed their tactics when previous ones had failed. Combatant Commanders when faced with challenges took the opportunity to change their tactics and this led to victory for the United States. Commanders must have the ability to make decisions on the battlefield. If leaders look at historical lessons learned and apply them to the Global War on Terrorism, we can meet with the same success.
