The military success of Ukraine in holding off a Russian invasion provides important lessons for USMarine Corps (USMC) Commandant David Berger’s new vision for the Corps.


This article by Howard Altman, writing for The Warzone, makes the following points:
  • General Berger’s Force Design 2030 concept aims to remake the Corps into a forward-deployed, distributed force.
  • Berger says much can be learned from how Ukrainian troops fight the Russians.
  • One of Ukraine’s advantages over Russia is that its small units can operate with a degree of independence.
  • Berger believes the ferocity of Ukrainian troops also reaffirms the physical aspect of combat—the ‘endurance factor’.
