Re: Kirchubel on Gross, 'The Myth and Reality of German Warfare: Operational Thinking from Moltke the Elder to Heusinger'

Stephen, Thanks so much for giving Tim Lupfer a great plug...although we now know that Brusilov had as much to with solving the dilemma of breaking through World War I defenses as much as did Georg Bruechmuller et al.
But Lupfer's stuff is great and still used to a great extent by us here at CGSC (us includes probably several folks you know or even taught at West Point). For those on H-WAR who do not know, Lupfer's magnificent monograph is here:

Navy Senate Hearings 1967-68: Plans for Maneuver Marines and LHA

A Very Short History:                                                                         It would take the book to tell this story of Marines, Navy and Manuever war. Will have to relate in brief with another multipart presented as continued discussion for Manuever v. Attrition.

Re: Hand Grenade of the Month for July 2017

For right now, will again refer to posting about 1970s plans, new design for Navy-Marcorps LHA ships. There is considerably more which details may have to provide on this subject discussion of attrition v. maneuver. Would get into further little bit later than today but not right this moment. Suffice to point out, there are other materials which will bring forward on this discussed.
