Abstract:

This reports an investigation into the distances, durations, and rates of advance of land combat forces. The work consists of four phases. The first phase was devoted to assembling as much of the existing statistical data on historical rates of advance as possible, and to computerizing the data. The second phase consists of a comprehensive survey and critical review of the literature to identify trends, omissions and gaps, and to provide a comparative analysis and assessment of its conclusions and findings. The third phase will consist of original statistical and other analyses of the assembled data. The fourth and final phase will involve reporting the results. Keywords Operations, Operations research, Rate of advance, Maneuver, Mobility, Survey, Review.
