There was a joke going round at the end of the war comparing how things changed from training in England, fighting in Italy, and ending the war in the Netherlands. One part went:
End of Day
England - We worked all damn day and they want us to dig in?
Italy - Right. Lets dig deep quick before the Huns know we're here.
Netherlands - We could get a few guilders for those pioneer tools.
Digging in at the end if the day does suck, but a lot less than being in the open when under fire.
As for the rest, it is generally acknoledged that rotation by individual rather than unit hurt effectiveness. As for the literal multiple levels of micromanagement, that seems to have worked as well as one would expect.
