An associate strongly recommended I look at this article. I would recommend the same to our readership: The Games the Marine Corps Plays | Military.com
It is written by Gary Anderson of GWU, who I do not know. But, to quote a few lines from the article:
- “You do not want prying eyes on your work that might question its rigor or validity.”
- “Since the Marines would be hundreds of miles away and irrelevant, they could be safely ignored.”
- “First, the Corps hired the most incompetent red team in the history of war-gaming, or their analysts cooked the books” (this sounds like a familiar problem, see: Wargaming 101 – Sayers vs. The U.S. Navy | Mystics & Statistics (dupuyinstitute.org)).
Anyhow, it is not a long article. Recommend reading it.
