Apologies for being dim, but where is the best place to look for a definitive guide to effects?

I don't have one, I'm afraid. Don't think we have a scanner at work either to be honest, I'll have a look in the morning and get back to you, if thats not too late?

Staff Officers' Handbook

They wont matter anyway if Gen Mattis' thoughts are proven to be right. Us Brits will have no option but to ditch them if we are to work in coalition with the Septics.

I had a conversation with an instructor at Leavenworth this week and he confirmed what I had gleaned from re-reading the letter from Gen Mattis. He hasn't thrown out effects, but the way they were planned- for example things like System of Systems Analysis. It is the jargon and complexity of EBO that has been stopped, not planning with effects itself.

Be careful with the US definitions they are slightly different. I've got the ICSC(L) guide somewhere - if you are desperate for them PM me and I'll dig it out.

That would be very kind. It would appear that the list from the AATAM, which I copied above, contains some non-defined effects :(

Is there an SO3 TAM with whom I could raise this?

I still use my definitions from JOTAC, tat came in the JOTAC handbook but thats from 2007. However we were told that if you went on DII to the Landwarfare centre and the Junior Officers course section you could down load the handbook or parts there of. However never tried this
