In past wars, especially those of recent decades, the IDF made little use of systemic depth action behind enemy lines to influence the outcome of the military campaign. Ironically, the very existence of the Depth Corps, which was established a decade ago in order to correct this lapse, strengthens the trends it was established to counteract. Those include excessive reliance on centralized command and micromanagement, the weakening of regional commands and field units, operational plans not based on appropriate force buildup, and harm to commanders’ sense of independence.
