Ole: I once read an essay on this very subject.

I don't suppose you remember the author? I admit the conclusions I would want to come to would run a bit deeper than that of the authors, but it would be an interesting consequence directly related to corps sizes that would help determine the answer of which was more effective. I can't really pinpoint when this question occurred to me, but it has been nagging me for some time that I could not find any theory on the matter. Maybe that is a good thing though, and I can come away with more by examining the subject myself in greater depth.

They are interesting conclusions  the author comes to though Ole. However, I'm sure it occurred to you the logic that one could use to argue exactly the opposite conclusion? Though the opportunity to develop  high level officers is less, wouldn't that mean you would not spread so thin your officer corps, in effect streamlining it and making it more effective?
