Example text

Scholars cite the advent of rifled weapons, breech-loading armament, railroads, and the telegraph as examples of new technology available on the battlefield. Increased firepower resulted in the expansion of skirmisher tactics and an emphasis on flanking maneuvers. [172] The advent of the Minie ball, and subsequent rifled firearms and artillery, should have drastically altered each of the service arm’s tactics. [176] The tactics of the various service arms were also affected. Rifled artillery now outranged the older smooth bores.

132] In contrast, pre-World War German doctrine[133] made it clear that the main task of field artillery was infantry support: “The principle duty of the field artillery is to support the infantry in the most effective manner. [134] [original italics]” Specifically, the German Field Artillery Drill Regulations stated that, at critical times, field artillery should be expected to fire from exposed positions to support infantry attacks. German infantry-artillery tactics encompassed rudimentary combined arms tactics.

110] In contrast, the Japanese followed the example of their Prussian tutors and consistently concentrated their artillery fire by massing their batteries. Heeding the advice gleaned from the Franco-Prussian War (imparted by the German advisors), Japanese artillery officers placed a high emphasis on supporting the infantry commander’s intent. A clear understanding and adherence to the commander’s intent allowed the Japanese to more efficiently mass their fires, while maintaining some degree of dispersion.
