Abstract:

The Staff Ride Handbook for Dade s Battle, Florida, 28 December 1835 is the eleventh volume in the Combat Studies Institute s Staff Ride Handbook series. Michel G. Anderson s well-researched handbook uses the opening conflict of the Second Seminole War as a vehicle to allow organizations at any echelon to study leadership at the tactical level. Although the battle was part of what is now called irregular warfare, today s leaders uniformed and civilian will find ample opportunity to highlight the role of all warfighting functions with a particular emphasis on intelligence, fires and protection. In addition, the backdrop of two ethnocultural groups, each antagonistic to the other, provides a strong continuity of experience to the many current and potential future operations of the United States Armed Forces. Continuing the tradition of CSI Publications and the Staff Ride Handbook series in particular, readers will not be surprised that the insights gleaned from conducting the Dade s Battle staff ride are as relevant today as they were over 175 years ago. Finally, commanders at all levels will find this handbook and the one-day staff ride on which it is based to be an excellent way to enhance subordinates understanding of their profession.
