As it happened, a lot of the things of what Germans did with their tanks can be found these days in the US FM's. Surprised? You shouldn't be.
US still has a thing to learn from German tank tactics of the WW2. It is a thing that enabled the success of the Blitz tactics, namely Auftragstaktik. Every leader through the army was trained in this and it was one of the cornerstones of Guderians work too. I believe that the best, most effective results are achieved when everyone is working for the common goal with almost full liberty of actions on their own battlespace. This is especially important with something like armored warfare where things are rapidly changing over large land areas. Until US changes it's whole operational culture they will be lacking in this sector IMO. [Good example of US failure in this field is Op. Anaconda. I don't know how authentic material I have read about the case but at times it seemed like actions of a SF team in the mountains were lead by a general million miles away. German way of doing this would have been to issue the lt/sgt leading the team their tasks and limits and let him be on his merry way. Micromanagement of subordinates from the rear was (and still is I believe) a serious no-go.]
And if we are talking about during WWII, Finland was an unfortunate US/UK Enemy for allying itself with the Reich in 1941 so Finnish instructors would have been considered enemy aliens, military pers would have been made POW's. There were Norwegians instructing the FSSF in Sking and the 10th Mountain division along with the National Ski Patrol.
Here is one of the guys:
Managed to be captain in FDF and Waffen-SS, Major in the US Army. There were actually a US training films from the 50's posted on mp.net a while ago. Everything in those films was from, guess where. Films also starred the bloke above among other Marttinen's men.

Dude, Thorne was a American citizen. Different than some instructor from Finland coming over here to train our soldiers. He was a SF soldier and is buried on our soil.<BR>
I believe (but stand open for correction) that the French trained British soldiers in Winter warfare in the mountains of Lebanon during WW2. Also British & French troop's deployed with skis on the Anglo-French expedition to Norway in 1939/40.
We really have gotten off topic from US soldier teaching Chinese. We all share in ideas. ........... so let's move on.
[QUOTE=LineDoggie;6312841]Sorry I hate to say this But I find it easier to read Time Travelers posts than you
I hate to say you..... *****************************
you again obviously don't comprehend that SOE and OSS worked in Civilian clothes and enemy uniform and with Partisans in the Balkans and Resistants in Europe. Jedburghs ring a Bell?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Jedburgh there were similar operation in Yugoslavia, Albania, Greece, etc.
THE OPERATIONS IN THE BALKANS OF THE SOE DON'T BE ANTISUBERSIVE OPERATIONS........ IF YOU CAN'T BE SEE THE DIFERRENCE OF TWO KIND OF OPERATIONS......
the use of civilian clothes is previous to soe.....(brandemburg use them before)
but soe don't have fac to the cas plane.... soe don't pursuit mujahadins and do reports to heliproded ambush forces, etc.... kaskad do and the the ussocom do know
READ AND LEARN
At Waco they werent Hostages for one thing, they were part of the cult. Secondly the FBI HRT and ATF are 2 seperate entitys. Again your lack of facts astounds...
Be hostages . the children and woman be manipulated
And the priority is save the inocents........ and the children and woman don't have any crime, for a antiterror asault team they be hostage to be free
Ad i don't say who the waco siege be made for the hrt...... i say who that siege be make instead of hrt be a criminal error
again get someone who can read/write english and repost this as its barely coherent.
And no ones trains with the US?
On Your part WHAT???? Armored Personnel Carriers to advance the Infantry with the Tanks is a Basic Tenet of combined arms philosophy. In WWII the US, UK, & Germany had this capability recognized and had the vehicles to accompany their tanks. The Soviets resorted to welding handholds to tank turrets for Infantry. So the Soviet Infantry were exposed to enemy fires Direct and Indirect the entire time during the assault with NO protection other than their overcoats.
You be a ignorant.... not be part of the combined arms doctrine...... learn to guderian ..... tuyaveski... etc...
the co0mbimned arms teory is based in the use of armour units like "armour fist" with the artillery, infantry and artilley like support arms
the infantry support needs a increment of infantry's movility....... and the apc is the "necesary tool" for that.... but not be a part of the doctrine
The US Army was experimenting at the same time as the Soviets and Germans as was the French and British. The British had a Model of Tank in 1918 that not only could be used as a carrier of supplies and Infantry but had successfully been tested in Amphibious tests. The Mark IX could carry 10 tonnes of supplies, or 30 armed Infantrymen and on 11 November 1918 successfully showed its amphibious capability in Welsh Harp Reservoir.
Read George S. Patton III, Adna R. Chaffee Jr., Charles De Gaulle, Hugh Elles, JFC Fuller, Basil Liddell Hart......
The us army don't the developed a real combined arms doctrine.... they have very limited experiments .......
I read...... read von manstein, guderian tuyaveskhi ...... read to real experts
Any of your great experts pass so much to the personal doctrine........ any west nation do a
total military doctrine like pu 36 to his army
But ------ you're a **** and can't have the capacity to see the diference of clandestine war and antisubersive bar..... operacional combine doctrine and tactical use orf arms

And it's obvius who you be a fanboy and the only you can do its talk about the facts wiouth know thwy
And you don't see the difernence of cover operations war, sabotage ........ and the antisubersive
war... if you know anithing .You talk abaut the seolus scouts and not abaut soe or the vietnam sog
the vietnam sog use a more limited version of the kaskad tactics and don`t be total integrate in the terrain sub units
- For the most part nobody even knows what goes on in the CIA, that's why they're CIA.But even if that's the case, there's nothing wrong with adapting with other nationality tactics.It doesn't mean that our paramilitary isn't the best, just as long as we're capable of pulling it off.
Former cia members claim for change the model of antiterror war en a-stan
Not ...... it'sw more easy . you need more commandos and create permanent unit to that task- I honestly don't understand this part of the statement. If you're trying to say how good other nationality's Special Forces team is compare to ours, prop to them I suppose. But our Special Operation Forces are trained for all climates and any situations too.
...put your mountain combat masters in this unit..... and all the special forces units have they
In the past be seen...... and you m113 with amos in a ch53k be a good alternative , better than a predator- And yet they are no where to be seen in Afghanistan.
- Finally something we can agree on.
- Blending in with the locals isn't a new idea or concept, we've been doing that since the war with the Native American. You could debate whether who's copy who's idea first since it's irrelevant and doesn't prove whether you are the best or not. For the most part the only history that the Special Operation Forces studied is the country that they are going to be on deployment in. This is to give a general idea of what to expect upon arrival and how to respect other nation's custom.
I know..... the problem is another. the problem is all the rest of regulars units of a dozen of country who patrol the litium route in mraps.
yes.... copying only save time and resources- As already mentioned before, "copying" doesn't mean you're the best or not, just as long as you could pull it off.
- I really don't understand this. But I hope you aren't trying to be insulting.
i try to be ironic....... some fanboys can't be capable who in the real world copy to another is irrelevant
- I don't see anything wrong about it, nor do you see most Americans going around bragging about it either.
and don't be wrong.... only it's a fact, a example of all the countrys copying
- Sorry, but this doesn't make any sense. Nor do I understand anything that follows afterward.
All this amount of talking just because you couldn't handle a joke.
it's easy ..... anybodys redevelpment the wheel
You can't see the diference of theorical doctrine and aplication of that
And patton...... never fight one of tank batles of the ost front....
in the 30's the soviet union have developed the pu36 .... years after of creation of armoured corps.The guderian blietzkrieg be crearted with their experiences in kazan with their teacher tuyavesky
And for you the principal cause of german fails is the loose of total war..... germany looses for don't be capable of compite whit the soviet and west capacity to arm and alisted unit
1. Germany looses until the soviet who use a very similar miliraty teory and the rest be secundary ..... the 80 % of german troops and resources die in the soviewt snow
p.d patton never stay in biggest tank battles like kursk
But a part of the members only be fan boys...... and can't be capable of admit who the us soldiers like the soldiers of the rest of the world only "specialized workers"(aka trosky) and the movies don't be real
2. don't only be culture . The presion of religion and the drugs money be a real definitive factors
3. Yes , the "air land battle" doctrine is a evolution of blietzkrieg....
4. the germans lost the war they who the soviets move their industry to siberia. Alemania don't have men and resources to fight a total war
Not don't true . iSay who us milatary copy a few tactique of russian and other countries(include russia) copyng tactiques of ther usa
But a few fanboys can admit that , why he think who us learn everiting to rest of the world
the tactics don't be cuban
Sorry . it's a joke.
From what I can discern, boel72b is what he says he is. I know his English is horrible, then again my Spanish is much worse than his English. A little civility goes a long ways.
