Abstract:

Sound Military Decision was first published at the Naval War College in 1936. It included the essential features of The Estimate of the Situation which, since 1910 had been issued at intervals in a series of revised editions. The new material that was added in 1936 was intended to assist in enlarging the viewpoint and in broadening the basis of professional judgment. The objective has been a brief but inclusive treatment of the fundamentals of the military profession, i.e., the profession of arms. The emphasis, naturally, is on the exercise of mental effort in the solution of military problems.
