Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen analyserar den tyska planeringen av Ardenneroffensiven med hjälp avNATO:s planeringsprocess, GoP 99. Inledningsvis så beskrivs planeringsprocessen ochdess koppling till militärteorin. Därefter så analyseras den tyska planeringen införArdenneroffensiven med hjälp av de olika stegen i planeringsprocessen i syfte att hittaskillnader och likheter. Slutligen så förs en diskussion kring planeringsprocessensanvändbarhet som analysinstrument. Resultatet av analysen visar att den tyskaplaneringen i huvudsak har haft samma innehåll som de olika stegen i GoP 99. Enviktig skillnad i den tyska planeringen har dock varit avsaknaden av en tydlig kopplingtill militärteorin och att operationen till del planerats på fel nivå. NATO:splaneringsprocess har genom sin militärteoretiska koppling en tidlöshet som gör att denfungerar som instrument för analyser av historiska operationer.

Abstract [en]

This essay analyses the German planning of the attack in the Ardennes usingthe NATO guidelines operational planning as help. Firstly the planning processand its interaction with military theory is described. Then the German planningof the Ardennes offensive is analysed by using the different steps of theplanning process in purpose to find differences and similarities. Finally adiscussion is being brought up about the planning process as an instrument foranalyses. The result of the analysis shows that the German planning in generalhas had the same contents as the NATO planning process. An importantdifference in the German planning have been the absence of a clear connectionto the military theory and also that the operation partly was planned on thewrong level. The NATO planning process has by its military theory connectiona timeless shape that makes it work as an instrument for analyses of historicaloperations.
