Abstract:

"This paper discusses the inception, formulation, implementation, and consequences of the doctrine used by the French Army in World War I as an example of what can happen when the best people, with the best intentions, select a doctrine that is completely wrong for the time and the circumstances under which it is to be executed. The author also discusses the political and psychological machinations used to support the doctrine, and how its failure resulted in development of a faulty doctrine for World War II."--Rand abstracts.
