The principles of war and the Nuremberg raid : 30-31 March 1944 / by Robert F. Tate
Includes bibliographical references (p. 169-172) and abstract
Historians and military strategists have attempted to determine universal factors that can be applied to combat situations at any level of war. These factors have become known as the Principles of War. The 30/31 March 1944 RAF raid on Nuremberg is studied from the perspective of the nine principles of war identified in U.S. Air Force Doctrine Document −1. After defining the principles, describing the context within which the Nuremberg raid was launched, and completing a short synopsis of the raid, a detailed analysis, which outlines Bomber Command's application of each principle, is conducted. Misapplications of these principles led to the ultimate failure of this mission. Had Bomber Command not misapplied the principles of war, the mission would not have been such a resounding failure.
