Animated Timeline Project Mary

  1. 1. By: Mary Phasounnabane<br />3rd Period<br />March 09, 2010<br />Animated Timeline Project<br />
  2. 2. Neolithic Period – Contemporary Period<br />Throughout my power-point, I will be covering at least 35 tactics/strategies with the creator of the tactics/strategies. <br />Towards the end will be at least 10 examples of Ender’s use of military tactics/strategies with an explanation of how it was successful<br />At the end of my slide will then contain a link that will direct you to my short video of how the tactics/strategies have changed over the past years<br />
  3. 3. Sun Tzu & His strategy<br />“Was an ancient military general with strategies that who is traditionally believed to have authored The Art of War, an influential ancient Chinese book on military strategies considered to be a prime example of Taoist thinking. The Song Dynasty in the early 1st millennium AD, the six works were combined with a Tang Dynasty text into a collection called the Seven Military Classics.”<br />
  4. 4. Nathan Bedford Forrest<br />“His strategy was to “ get there first with the most men." Some of the most commonly cited principles are the objective, the offensive, surprise, security, unity of command, economy of force, mass, and maneuver. Most are interdependent. “<br />
  5. 5. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower<br />“He and his group effectively massed their forces in England, deceived Germany regarding the point of invasion, collected intelligence on the disposition of German forces, and set the vast maneuver called Operation Overlord into motion. “<br />
  6. 6. Duke of Marlborough early 18th century<br />“The penetration--one of the oldest maneuvers--is a main attack that attempts to pierce the enemy line while secondary attacks up and down the enemy line prevent the freeing of the enemy reserves.”<br />Also used by Gen. Bernard Montgomery at El Alamein (1942).<br />
  7. 7. Philip II<br />“Philip combined infantry, cavalry, and primitive artillery into a trained, organized, and maneuverable fighting force backed up by engineers and a rudimentary signaling system”<br />
  8. 8. Alexander the Great<br />“An accomplished strategist and tactician with his concern for planning, keeping open lines of communication and supply, security, relentless pursuit of foes, and the use of surprise”<br />
  9. 9. Hannibal<br />“Supreme tactician whose crushing victories taught the Romans that the flexible attack tactics of their legions needed to be supplemented by unity of command and an improved cavalry”<br />
  10. 10. “Emphasized occupying enemy territory through carefully planned, rapid and precise geometric maneuvers”<br />Antoine Jomini<br />
  11. 11. Genghis Khan<br /><ul><li>“Genghis Khan’s organization was essentially practical. Battle encampments were designed in exactly the same format regardless of the location of the war party. This ensured that any soldier under the rule of Genghis knew exactly where everything could be found and would be a highly effective worker and minimal time would be wasted in extra training. True, a weakness of this strategy is that enemies and defectors would have little planning in attacking by surprise. However Genghis hated treachery with a passion to such an extent that he even executed a defector who had converted to his cause and capture his enemy.”</li></li></ul><li>Gustav II Adolf<br />“ The father of modern tactics because he reintroduced maneuver into military science. His disciplined national standing army--differing from the common use of mercenaries--was organized into small, mobile units armed with highly superior, maneuverable firepower and supplemented by mounted dragoons (his creation) armed with carbine and saber”<br />
  12. 12. Frederick II<br /><ul><li>“Master of initiative and mass, conducted war in an age of limited warfare--armies were small and expensive; road and supply systems were inadequate. In the Seven Years' War (1756-63), Frederick faced a coalition whose various forces almost surrounded Prussia. Using a strategy of interior lines, Frederick--supported by a highly disciplined army and horse artillery (his creation)--would quickly maneuver, assemble a superior force at some decisive point along the line of encirclement, and, with massed howitzer fire, strike hard against an enemy flank before moving to another point. “</li></li></ul><li>Napoleon I<br />“Planned his campaigns and quickly maneuvered his troops by forced marshes to a selected field of battle. His battles began with skirmishing and cannonading, followed by an overwhelming concentration of forces in shock bayonet attacks against enemy flanks in turning and enveloping movements designed to utterly destroy opposing forces”<br />
  13. 13. Carl von Clausewitz<br />“Emphasized the close relationship between war and national policy and the importance of the principles of mass, economy of force, and the destruction of enemy “<br />
  14. 14. Alfred von Schlieffen<br />“Creator of the Schrieffer plan (defense against Russia and envelopment of France), which Germany applied in a modified form at the beginning of World War I.”<br />
  15. 15. Giulio Douhet, Billy Mitchell, Henry Arnold, and Hugh Trenchard <br /><ul><li>“They insisted that air power alone could win wars, not only by striking at enemy forces but by strategic bombing--the massive attack on cities, industries, and lines of communication and supply that characterized part of allied strategy during World War II. The other World War I development was that of motorized armored vehicles such as the tank”</li></li></ul><li> B. H. Liddell Hart<br />“Use of the tank as the new cavalry of the modern age”<br />
  16. 16. Commanders as Heinz Guderian and Erwin Rommel<br />“Germans were the first to effectively use the tactical offensive combination of air and tank power in the field of battle in the blitzkriegs, under such commanders as Heinz Guderian and Erwin Rommel, which conquered much of Europe in World War II. “<br />

  21. 21. Blitzkrieg<br />“During the interwar period, aircraft and tank technologies matured and were combined with systematic application of the German tactics of infiltration and bypassing of enemy strong points. When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, Western journalists adopted the term Blitzkrieg to describe this form of armored warfare.”<br />
  22. 22. Ambush<br />“Ambushers strike from concealed positions, such as among dense underbrush or behind hilltops. Ambushes have been used consistently throughout history, from ancient to modern warfare. During ancient warfare, an ambush often might involve thousands of soldiers on a large scale. Hannibal encamped within striking distance of the Romans with the Trebbia River between them, and placed a strong force of cavalry and infantry in concealment, near the battle zone”<br />
  23. 23. Human wave attack<br /><ul><li>“The description of an attack as a human wave attack implies the defender's ability to inflict horrific casualties on the attacker, usually through superior firepower, training or technology. It also suggests a callousness of the attacker towards its own troops, and therefore description of an attack as such is likely to be used only by the defender or a later commentator. Used by China”</li></li></ul><li>Fabian strategy<br /><ul><li>“Pitched battles and frontal assaults are avoided in favor of wearing down an opponent through a war of attrition and indirection. While avoiding decisive battles, the side employing this strategy harasses its enemy through skirmishes to cause attrition, disrupt supply and affect morale. Employment of this strategy implies that the weaker side believes time is on its side, but it may also be adopted when no feasible alternative strategy can be devised. This strategy derives its name from Quintus FabiusMacimusVerucosus”</li></li></ul><li>Fortifications<br /><ul><li>“Are military constructions and buildings designed for defense in warfare and military bases. Humans have constructed defensive works for many thousands of years, in a variety of increasingly complex designs”</li></li></ul><li>My Citations <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
