1 Baltic Military History Newsletter November 2011 Baltic Military History Workshop 2011 The Baltic Military History Workshop 2011 was held at the Baltic Defence College October The presentations ranged chronologically from the Napoleon Wars in the Baltic region to a report on the contemporary activities of the Command History Program of the United States European Command (EURCOM). Presenters covered a broad field of topics ranging from the research activities of Cesis Battlefield Association on the Estonian- Latvia battles against the Germans in 1919, archaeological investigation of a Post World War II Lithuania resistance fighters bunker in the Daugėliškės Forest, recent research on campaign planning and the Narva front in 1944, to an examination of the development of Finnish armour doctrine through the Cold War era. 1

2 Participants came from the University of Tartu, two Canadian universities, US Marine Corps, EURCOM, Italian Military History Office, Lithuanian Military History Centre, the Latvian War Museum, the Finnish National Defence College, Military Academy of Lithuania, the Estonian National Defence College, and the Baltic Defence College. On the evening of 20 October, a festive dinner was held at the Atlantis Restaurant for presenters and senior leadership of the Baltic Defence College. Baltic Defence College s JCGSC Operation Albion Case Study Trip to Saaremaa On October 2011 the Baltic Defence College s Joint Command General Staff Course (JCGSC) visited Saaremaa and Muhumaa to conduct their case study on Operation Albion, the German amphibious landing in October

3 Saaremaa s Sõrve Peninsula controlled the western entrance to the Gulf of Riga and thus it was of great strategic and operational importance during the First World War. Operation Albion has been widely studied in staff colleges and by various militaries including the American Marines and Army, Germans, Soviets, Japanese, British and Estonians as it is perhaps the first modern truly joint operation and a good example of manoeuvre warfare. 3

4 The trip took place a week after the 94 th anniversary of the operation however, the weather was substantially better than it was in The JCGSC s visit also included a hosted dinner and a tour of the Bishop s Castle in Kuressaare which contains the Saaremaa historical museum. Call for Papers: The Change of Education under Conditions of Globalization: The Army and Society December 2011 Sponsored by General Jonas Zemaitis Military Academy of Lithuania Training and Doctrine Command of Lithuanian Armed Forces Royal Lithuanian Nobility Union The Lithuanian Military Academy would like to invite academics, researchers, students and practitioners to a conference held on December, 2011 at the Lithuanian Military Academy, Vilnius. If you are interested in attending or presenting a paper for a registration form and submit a short abstract on your proposed topic to by 10 November, 2011 PME Methodology Seminar Using the Case Method in conjunction with the International Society for Military Sciences (ISMS) Conference on 9 November 2011 On 9 November 2011, a Professional Military Education (PME) methodology seminar will be held at Baltic Defence College (BDCOL) in conjunction with the ISMS Conference. The primary purpose of the methodology seminar is to provide participants with an intensive introduction to the use of the case method in professional military education (PME). Secondary goals include the fostering of further international (notably regional) cooperation in PME. The US Marine Corps University (MCU) has been steady moving towards increased use of the case method as from long civilian and military experience it has proven more effective than other modes of instruction. Recently within allied defence colleges of Northern Europe there has been realization that problems in PME methodology have led to a near crisis situation within these institutions. The case method can provide part of a solution for these methodological problems. The Case Method The case method is an approach to teaching that uses the solution of the complex problems at the heart of real life events to teach a wide variety of skills and subjects. Research shows that adults learn more effectively from experience rather than trying to memorize lists of characteristics, traits and attributes. Case studies provide condensed experience and thus are a more effective way of learning than classroom lectures on theories and principles. The case method is a subset of the applicatory method of teaching. Also known as the problem method, the applicatory method asks the student to 4

5 devise specific solutions to specific problems of various kinds. The case method has proven to be a highly effective mode of learning in professional education. In civilian graduate education, the case method has been extensively used in business programs and in law and medical schools. The seminar endeavours to provide a truly beneficial experience to professionals working in regional PME institutions. Planned Program The seminar will provide a gentle introduction to the case method and through a series of interactive cases will show how the case method is used to teach PME topics as strategy, operational planning, tactics, civil military cooperation and logistics. The seminar is principally aimed for faculty or directing staff from Baltic and Scandinavian PME institutions to update and improve teaching methodology. Dr. Bruce I. Gudmundsson of MCU will serve as principal subject matter expert. Tentatively representatives of the BDCOL, MCU, Estonian National Defence College and the Danish Defence College will be participating.
