ABSTRACT

Resupply of Duffer's Drift   [open html - 0B]

In this short story, "The Resupply of Duffer's Drift", William C. Latham Jr. provides a fresh take on "The Defence of Duffer's Drift," a short 1904 book by Ernest Dunlop Swinton. From the webpage: "The 1904 novella recounts a series of dreams in which a British junior officer tries and fails to defend a critical river crossing, until he finally absorbs the lessons and accomplishes the mission. In light of the US Army's renewed emphasis on platoon leader development, this updated story borrows from Swinton's original work to illustrate core principles of small unit leadership in the twenty-first century."
