We claim that modeling of human decision making is an Achilles heel in military OR. The paper describes a simple model of an air campaign, formalized as a two-player zero-sum game with strategic uncertainty that features mixed strategy solutions. This game is used for testing game theory's ability to explain human decision-making and learning. Both conceptual and decision-making development as a function of experience with Campaign is measured, and the results indicate negative learning in both respects, except in cases where a deterministic solution exists.
