Abstract:

Crane Brintons analysis of popular revolutions offers the strategic and operational planner a valid mode for checking the consistency of ends, ways and means, for campaign plans. As a planning tool, Brintons model fills a gap in FM 100-20, which all but ignores popular revolutions. Furthermore, Brintons model discusses post-revolt dynamics, another area devoid of good analysis. This monograph revalidates Brintons 1938 model using the Iranian Revolution as a test case, proving the timelessness of sound thought.
