How to Complete Battle Plans 100 points Battle Plan Scenarios are Critical thinking activities deigned to have you ‘solve’ a military problem. You and your group will be tasked with a problem in which you will Outline your plan, Write out a Step by Step Plan, and Detail your Map.
Part I: The Battle Plan Outline 40 Points Complete the Typed Outline addressing each of the Nine Principles of War with Depth 1 st Focus on your Objective & Sub objectives while planning out how you will Mass your Troops, Using Maneuver, & Surprise your ability
Focus on the 4 main principals first. This part of the process should take up a majority of your time. Your Code Name Should begin to formulate based on the Type of Plan and Scenario
WWII Battle Plan Sample The End of ‘Welgie Day’ Forever!!!
Sample: Mass Your Troops We will organize our forces into 3 groups code named… Alpha Bravo Charlie Each Group will consist of 7-10 people
Sample: Objective Goal is to Destroy Mr. Welgoss’s podium while capturing his prized collection of ‘Presidential Trading Cards’ valued at a total of 62 cents. Yes he’s pretty cheap!
Sample: Offensive Since I have never seen Mr. Welgoss leave his room in 13 years we unfortunately will have to go on the Offensive in order to achieve our objectives. Usually this would be a huge risk but since Mr. Welgoss is as violent as Gandhi I think we’re okay.
Sample: Maneuver Alpha Unit will form up at the door and… Knock.. Hard!! Beta Unit already having Neutralized Conrad’s Room will prepare charges to blow through Welgie’s Wall Charlie Unit massed on the 4 th floor will prepare to repel through his windows
Sample Outline 40 Points Last 5 Principals of War should only be Answered Once the first 4 have been Addressed with Depth Now Assess your Plan by ensuring that all 5 remaining principals are addressed and that your plan has minimal flaws.
Sample: Unity of Command Using cell phones and group texting we will stay organized. Team leaders will coordinate plan on the loud knock at 15:00 (3:00 if you failed Boot Camp)
Sample: Security Using desktops as shields, Goalie equipment (thanks Harris) as amour, and books for propaganda we will not be touched In addition, Welgie may be fast on a basketball court but have you ever seen him move fast in his room? Me neither!
Sample: Simplicity We need to K.I.S.S. It or….. It’s so simple that even Conrad & Knight the Varsity Rugby and Hockey Coaches could even understand it
Sample: Surprise When we knock on his door, blow a hole in his wall, and repel from the 4 th floor … Welgie will be Surprised!!
Sample: Economy of Force Your parents paid their school taxes already. Right??? We have Unlimited budget to pay your Cell Bill, Provide Goalie Equipment, Cut up Desktops, and Repelling Equipment Sweet!!
Step by Step Plan 40 Points In typed Paragraph form explain your entire plan with depth from the moment of attack to the finish. Be thorough! If I can’t follow along neither can your men!
The Map: 20pts Make sure you draw in your forces, their maneuvers, and your targets with Color! Using both the Paragraph which I read and the Map which I trace I should be able to tell if you plan ‘could’ be successful or not.
Are You Ready for your First Battle Plan???? Hopefully you read your Full Briefing Report for HW Did you? You will be given 1 Generic Outline, 1Senerio ‘Rule’ Sheet, & 1 Map Let’s GO!!!!!
