Implementation of manoeuvre warfare in the Swedish army
Student paper otherStudent thesis
Sweden and the surrounding countries have reorganised their armies towards a manoeuvre warfare concept. In Sweden new regulations were produced in the middle of the 90s using manoeuvre warfare as a basic idea. The purpose of this paper is to produce a clearer picture of the Swedish manoeuvre warfare concept and how it can be implemented. An inductive method of working has been used, qualitative data has been gathered and studied.The Swedish manoeuvre warfare concept has been difficult to define because of indistinct actions. It is only after complementing interviews that the picture has cleared up. In a comparison of different manoeuvre warfare theories, certain differences and similarities are elucidated and also, from where ideas for our regulations and doctrines have originated.The conclusion is that the manoeuvre warfare concept is neither clearly defined nor implemented in the army. Differences exist between the printed word, actions and training. The paper is concluded by a number of proposals as to how education and training should be developed so that implementation can be fully accomplished and in addition, several research questions that could push the manoeuvre warfare concept further.
