Combat Adaption Through Time

November 2nd, 2017 by Cameron Gibbins and James Kingham

Reflections from the Chief of Army History Conference – and why you should be there in 2018.

Sir Michael Howard called adaption “an aspect of military science that must be studied above all others.”[1] Driven by the central importance of learning from our military experience, the Chief of Army History Conference 2017 (CAHC17) focused on the topic of ‘The Skill of Adaptability: The learning curve in combat’. For two days, a range of international speakers assembled in Canberra to discuss in a conference format, historical experience on adaption. This paper seeks to highlight the importance of the conference through a brief synopsis and analysis of the conference’s findings, offering a methodology for combat adaption grounded in historical analysis. Further, this paper will offer some suggestions on expanding the audience and outcome of such a great event.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
