Two serving officers provide a revealing insight into doctrinal engagement amongst front-line officers, which casts serious doubts on the government's claim that British personnel understand the mission in Afghanistan. Their study, conducted amongst British officers with at least two combat operations under their belt, finds an alarming disconnect between political objectives and military doctrine. Harvey and Wilkinson offer a range of recommendations for reform, and issue a clarion call for the reinvigoration of doctrine at the heart of army culture.
