Summary "Staff rides are a unique and powerful way for today's leaders to gain insight and wisdom from the past for present-day application. In the process of absorbing those gains, staff ride participants exercise and improve their critical thinking skills, essential creativity, and decision-making capabilities. Properly conducted, staff rides re-animate historical battles at the actual locations where each contest took place. Every staff ride experience provides examples of leadership, tactics, operations, strategy, communications, use of the physical terrain, and perhaps most importantly, the psychology of people in combat and other crises. The examination of these factors and choices, as well as their outcome, is just as applicable today as it was in the past. This reference guide, combined with personal research and reconnaissance, offers an invaluable opportunity for the professional development of leaders by enhancing their understanding of the effective use of military force in multidomain operations"-- Provided by publisher.
