This thesis examines the procedures of the tactical orders process of the Wehrmacht German Army 1930-1945, the Soviet Army 1939-1990, and the U.S. Army 1940-1990. The research focuses on the tactical orders process at division level and below. The tactical orders process is defined as the process by which a tactical level commander receives or deduces the mission, analyzes the tactical situation, prepares courses of action, makes a decision, issues an order, executes the plan and adjusts to new situations as required in order to accomplish the mission. The methodology compares the current U.S. procedures with those of the Wehrmacht German Army 1930-1945, and the Soviet Army 1939- 1990. The Wehrmacht employed a very decentralized, predominantly verbal, tactical orders process. Both aim at shortening tactical decision cycles and gaining a time advantage through a quick and effective orders process. Research revealed that the tactical orders process employed by the Wehrmacht in World War II was highly sophisticated and an effective combat multiplier. The Soviet Troop Control process, is effective for the Soviet style of warfighting, and is an important part of their vision of success. This study recommends changes to the U.S. process to optimize the ability of U.S. Army to execute AirLand Battle on todays battlefields.
