University Officer Training Corps

Galina can provide tours to University Officer Training Corps & for 24 years Galina have been helping take groups to battlefields throughout Europe. Click here to see who has travelled with Galina.

Objective

Central to a Galina battlefield study is the belief that a commander in the field should be cognisant of Army doctrine, mindful of his duty to his men, appreciative of mission analysis, deductive in relation to combat estimate and, in the absence of comprehensive information and intelligence, exercise interpretive skills to formulate solutions. The study links:

  • historical event
  • preliminary study
  • terrain

Aim

To provide a historical case study to enhance the professional military education of all participants. The exercise will be conducted with three constituent phases:
a) Preliminary Study: Galina will supply relevant materials prior to tour departure, providing background information and an overview of the tour.
b) Field Study: Galina will supply maps and battlefield study notes including primary and secondary sources supported by photographs and film.
c) Integration: A plenary session at the tour’s conclusion
