Over the last week I have been contemplating over the Torch Exam. The idea here is to understand the center of gravities at the strategic and operational environments and determine if they are clear. "Torch" was the name of operation in North Africa during WWII. I like to think of it as a warm up for the main event. We (US) learned a significant amount about ourselves during this operation. I had read An Army at Dawn before reading this exam, so I was hoping that I would not be skewed by what I read. I was surprised to find that it had primary sources attached. I have another three days to complete it! On a side not we discussed Learning Organizations in our Leadership class today. I really enjoy the small tidbits that I can add to my kitbag in my future unit.
