Theories reflected in doctrines : William S. Lind and Robert Leonhard´s vision of maneuver warfare and its similarities with Doctrine for joint operations (English)
Abstract [sv]

William S. Lind och Robert Leonhard har båda givit ut skrifter som behandlar begreppet manöverkrigföring. Försvarsmakten skall vid operationer använda sig av manövertänkandet som enligt doktrinen har sin grund i manöverkrigföring. Den svenska doktrinen avser att ta utgångspunkt i teorin men lämnar fåtalet referenser till detta i sin utformning. Uppsatsen syftar till att studera likheterna mellan William S Lind och Robert Leonhards teorier om manöverkrigföring, och det manövertänkande som finns i Doktrin för gemensamma operationer. Författaren har genom en kvalitativ textanalys tagit ut ett antal indikatorer från teorierna som sedan har analyserats i doktrinen för att finna liknelser dessa emellan. Resultatet visar att Lind och Leonhards teorier om manöverkrigföring i vissa avseenden kan liknas vid doktrinen, samt att fler liknelser till Linds teori har funnits i doktrinen. Dock är det överlag få liknelser som har påträffats.

Abstract [en]

William S. Lind and Robert Leonhard have both published papers that explain how they look on maneuver warfare. Swedish Armed Forces during operations make use of maneuver thinking that is based on maneuver warfare according to the doctrine. The Swedish doctrine refers to the basis of the theory, but provides few references to this in their design.The paper aims to study the similarities between William S. Lind and Robert Leonhard's theory of maneuver warfare, and the wordings which are in Doctrine for joint operations.The author has through a qualitative textual analysis made a number of indicators from the theories that have been analyzed in the doctrine to find similarities between them.The results show that Lind and Leonhard's theory of maneuver warfare are in some respects similar to the doctrine, and more similarities has been found in Lind's theory than in Leonhard's. But it is overall few similarities that have been found.
