The ‘Palestine’ campaign in 1917-18 from the british perspective: enduring lessons for the contemporary environment

Otacilio Bandeira Peçanha

Abstract


Presently, the operational art and operational estimate executed at the level of the Joint Commander and the theatre-level Joint Task Force Commander, o?ers the most appropriate instrument for planning at the operational level, translating strategic objectives into tactical actions. In the very ?rst major world con?ict, the analysis of overwhelming British military campaign of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force, commanded by General Allenby in Palestine occupied by Turkish-O?oman forces, presents a distinct example of how to harmonize military actions, undertaken in the heat of the ba?le?eld, with the highest national political aspirations. Bearing in mind the British perspective, this essay seeks to establish whether the lessons learned in this campaign are perennial and applicable to current scenario.
