On the Psychology of Military Incompetence, Dixon, Norman. With a Forward by Brigadier Shelford Bidwell
14 Dixon, Norman. With a Forward by Brigadier Shelford Bidwell On the Psychology of Military Incompetence
London Pimlico 1994 0712658890 / 9780712658898 Reprint Paperback Very Good Octavo 
447 pp. Upper corners lightly bumped. Shallow creases to spine, but binding is solid throughout. Yellowing to edges of text block and outer page margins. Internally unmarked; solidly bound. Notes, bibliography, index. "The Crimea, the Boer War, the Somme, Tobruk, Singapore, Pearl Harbour, Arnhem, The Bay of Pigs: just some of the milestones in a century of military incompetence, of costly mishaps and tragic blunders. Are such blunders simple accidents -- as the 'bloody fool' theory has it -- or are they inevitable, caused by an incompetence which is itself an inexorable result of the requirements of the military system? In this superb and controversial book Professor Dixon examines these and other mistakes and relates them to the social psychology of military organization and to the personalities of some eminent military commanders. His conclusions are both startling and disturbing."
