The discerning historian and also wargamer who wants to know more about the period will find this a rich vein of information, both on the structure and tactics of the American Armoured Battalion, but also the lessons learned after in the Pacific, Tunisian campaign and in France subsequently.
This is a reprint of the 1944 tactical doctrine publication for use by the armoured battalion. Covers every aspect of battalion action, paralleling the company tactical work, but also goes into amphibious warfare, jungle warfare (with battle formation diagrams), attacking or defending river lines, night operations, operations in towns, etc. This particular work is annotated with comments from Colonel John Elting, one of its original authors and whose personal copy was the source of this work.
