Battlefield Studies

Battlefield Studies with
In The Footsteps®

Our battlefield studies are specifically designed to deliver the core function of professional education to military units and formations. They must not be confused with other activity on former battlefields such as commemorations, the maintenance of memorials, or team building exercises as these fall within the scope of our Group Tours.

Battlefield studies are directed by the chain of command as formal training and education. We work closely with the chain of command to deliver a battlefield study that meets defined criteria in order to prepare formations, units and individuals for future operations by enhancing their understanding of current operations and improving their comprehension of conventional operations.

All of our battlefield studies have three distinct phases:

  • Preliminary Study — The systematic preliminary study of the selected campaign prior to visiting the sites associated with that campaign.

  • Field Study — An extensive visit to the actual sites associated with that campaign to integrate contextual lessons through the use of personal accounts and vignettes at carefully selected locations along the field study route.

  • Post-Study Integration — A post-visit phase aimed at confirming the lessons learned and setting the stage for future development.

A battlefield study with In The Footsteps links the historical event, preliminary study and terrain to produce battle analysis and facilitates the application of current military doctrine through the prism of military history.
