58 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.1in.This monograph examines the importance of a commanders ability to sense the terrain. The discussion relates this ability to the commanders ability to act faster than the enemy. This agility is critical to tactical success. As agility is one of the four tenets of the U. S. Armys fighting doctrine it is important that the Army determine means to improve tactical agility. Developing a sense of locality is one way to promote tactical agility. This monograph examines the relationship between these two concepts and shows that a sense of locality is essential for tactical agility. The discussion begins with consideration of the theoretical and doctrinal aspects of terrain, a sense of locality, tactics, and agility. It includes an examination of the elements of a sense of locality, a definition of tactical agility, and an analysis of the relationship between a sense of locality and tactical agility. To illustrate this relationship two historical battles are briefly described and examined. The first illustration is of Major General Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson at the Battle of Winchester during his Shenandoah Valley Campaign in the Spring of 1862. The second is of Major General Norman D. Cota at the Battle of Schmidt in November, 1944.
