Transformation through Expeditionary Warfare: Military Change in Poland

(p.167) 8 Transformation through Expeditionary Warfare: Military Change in Poland
A Transformation Gap?

Olaf Osica

Stanford University Press

This chapter addresses the key drivers and obstacles to the transformation process of the Polish armed forces. The Polish approach to military transformation is considered, specifically with an exploration of the overall concept, expeditionary warfare, effects-based operations, and network-enabled operations. A discussion of several factors that will very likely impact the speed and the scale of military transformation in Poland in the future are reported upon. The Polish approach to military transformation seemed to be an evaluation of its ability to act as a reliable partner in military coalitions, rather than a reflection of national defense needs. It is shown that Poland is at the beginning of the process of military transformation. Poland may change its defense priorities and refocus on territorial defense.

Keywords:   Polish armed forces, military transformation, expeditionary warfare, effects-based operations, network-enabled operations, Poland, territorial defense
