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 Tank Company, with the lessons learned from combat. Elting’s comments are apposite and very useful.
This is a reprint of the 1944 tactical doctrine publication for use by the tank company. It covers everything you would want to know about US armoured tactics: bivouacs, offensive actions, defensive actions, use as artillery, formation diagrams, weapons characteristics, and much more. 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.
