The author in question is an all round good bloke IMHO. If there is any unwillingness to follow him, perhaps it stems from his willingness to experiment/try somehting new, which doesn't quite sit with our conservative view of 'how things should be done'.Darth_Doctrinus said:Rabid,
I'm with you - brain the size of an obvious - wouldn't follow the chap anywhere near an operational theatre. Like so many others in this field, lots of ideas, great concepts - but feck all understanding of the way we actually operate, which I would argue you need to 'make it happen'.
Look how much dead wood currently floats about in LWC - supposedly the focus of Warfighting in the LAND environment!
The fact remains, he is one of the few guys I have ever heard of/known who has tried to do something differently and has been prepared to take criticsim in order to do it. You may not trust him near an operational theatre, but as Commander of a permanent trials/experimentation/OPFOR unit?
