Often the US military, like the Roman Legions, tends to spend too much time preparing for the last war. As a result they are often taken by surprise by a radical change in enemy tactics. Hannibal shocked Rome by crossing the Alps. Germany drove tanks through the impenetrable Ardennes Forest. America suffered its share of surprise as well. Two men come to mind here; Admiral Husband E. Kimmel and General Walter C. Short. Any person who aspires to high rank in the US military Services had better know those names and what they are most known for.
