Freedom UnFettered: To Move Forward

 This book is a compilation of articles which suggest reforms in various fields. However, the main idea of the book is to highlight the importance of original and creative thinking. Normal training is important but no wars or even battles are won by just following the laid down procedures. Creative thinking is a must, for the Armed Forces.

The other aspect, neglected in our Army, is ‘logistics’. The Army Service Corps (ASC) in our Army provides all the transportation in ‘forward’ areas. It also provides all the ‘combat supplies’ in the field (i.e. rations, fuels, oils and lubricants, and ammunition). It, thus, deals with the entire range of ‘Operational Logistics’. It is for this reason that a complete section of this book is focused on the ASC.

Besides these, there are other cases which could have serious implications during war time. For example, in forming organisations, the principle of accountability to go with authority has been violated in the reorganised second-line ASC. The ASC is responsible for providing maximum vehicles on the road but have no control on second-line repairs. Similarly, peculiarities of petroleum products are not fully understood and so on. All these have serious implications and thus have been included in this book.
