Abstract:

This project compares two great military leaders of World War Ii, Heinz W. Guderian and George S. Patton, Jr. Its purpose is to relate their strategies and tactics to the Air Command and Staff College strategy process model through an examination of their respective backgrounds and major World War II campaigns. Additionally, the project examines their application of the Principles of War as defined in AFM 1-1. The significance of examining these two World War II warriors lies in the simple fact they both were early and strong proponents of armored warfare.
