Infantry Soldiers have been the backbone of every army throughout history. Being the most fundamental and enduring of military occupations, the foot-soldier's art has been honed by centuries of warfighting around the world.
These skills, therefore, should be studied not only by the Infantryman but by anyone who wishes to be well-prepared for potential combat, whatever their profession or specialty.
With an incredible 820+ pages of tightly-written and profusely-illustrated material, this unique book provides the reader with a complete understanding of the strategy, tactics, techniques and tools of modern land warfare from the perspective of the small unit leader.
"The primary mission of the Infantry platoon and squad is to close with the enemy by means of fire and maneuver to destroy, capture, or repel an assault by fire, close combat, and counterattack. In order to succeed, Infantry platoons and squads are aggressive, physically fit, disciplined, and well-trained. The inherent strategic mobility of Infantry units dictates a need to be prepared for rapid deployment in response to situations in different operational environments" - From the first chapter.
