An interesting read. I like how many cases, from how many diverse scenarios, are examined.

It explains so much about why some nations' armies are able to outperform others'.

Basic stuff, and yet missed -- so widely missed -- in many nation's approaches to their militaries.

The most significant point in the file is:
"Sgt Wenzel's understanding of the plan allowed him to shoulder the burden of responsibility of leading the assault force. He clearly understood his pivotal role in the invasion of Belgium, and his actions fully supported his commander's intent."
Lieutenant Witzig had fully briefed his subordinate about the plan and the importance of the mission. IMO this sets a clear example for platoon and company commanders.
