Abstract : This paper examines the threads that connect the WWI experiences of Winston Churchill and George Marshall to their successes in the Second World War. The learning process engaged in by Churchill and Marshall corresponds well with modern experiential education theory. This correlation appears to explain their success to some degree. The conclusion drawn is that the experiential learning techniques applied by Churchill and Marshall during the interwar period should be utilized in the development of todays military officers.
