Overview

The six weeks of deliberations known as the “transatlantic essay contest” demonstrated the cognitive tensions between two allies and their respective services regarding the operational objectives for the North African campaign. Achieving the ultimate objective of the campaign was a balancing act between selecting operational objectives within the operational reach of the forces available while mitigating undesired effects. Each nation and service proposed different methods for balancing the conflicting views in order to achieve the strategic objectives set forth in the August 13, 1942 directive to the Allied Expeditionary Force Commander in Chief. In the end it took the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom to break the impasse and provide the resources necessary to provide the mission a reasonable chance of success. Although the North African campaign was fought seventy years ago, the planning principles that drove the development of the North African campaign are just as relevant today as they were in 1942.

    Really? Some people enjoy these things. If you don't want to participate, then don't. But don't discourage writers who like to be a part of these contests.
