The military price for this is very high. Without the cohesion supplied by NCOs, units tend to disintegrate in the stress of combat. This is primarily a function of the fact that the enlisted soldiers simply do not trust their officers. Once officers depart the training areas, training begins to fall apart as soldiers begin drifting off. An Egyptian officer once explained to me that the Egyptian army's catastrophic defeat in 1967 resulted from a lack of cohesion within units. The situation, he said, had only marginally improved in 1973. Iraqi prisoners in 1991 showed a remarkable fear and enmity toward their officers.
The Vikings were most feared because they used the seas as their highways. They could show up quickly and were nearly impossible to track. The Vikings were very skilled shipbuilders and navigators and only sailed between the months of April and early October. Their ships had a maximum speed of about 7 knots under oars. They were usually around . To enemies these ships were known for their incredible swiftness and maneuverability. This was because the ships were equipped with rudders. The ships could hold between 40 and 60 people. (From Viking to Crusader…Rizzoli)
The Viking Age ended when many states in Europe developed the feudal system. This system gave the local lords wealth and property in exchange for their services as cavalry soldiers in the army. The Viking raiders were no match for these heavily equipped, well trained soldiers. Consequently, the Viking settlements were crushed by these armies. During their existence, the Vikings had a definite impact on world history that will never be forgotten. They have left a legacy in history as having been fearless, cunning, and brutal warriors who had a dramatic impact on the advancement of civilization. (The Vikings…Living History.)
