TOCOLONEL WOLFUnder whose careful supervision so many havereceived their Military Training in order thatthey may show the world in battle the true spiritof American manhood.Acknowledgment.To have prepared this book within the time allotted to it, without theassistance of Candidates ALCOTT FARRAR ELWELL and LYLE MILTON PROUSEwould have been impossible, and grateful recognition is made of theirservices. Not only much of the manual labor, but the preparation ofentire chapters, has been in their hands.Candidates CHARLES HUNTINGTON JACOBS and MICHAEL FRANCIS MCALEER haverendered very valuable assistance and we wish to thank the followingcandidates for the loan of materials used elsewhere, for typewritingand other work:GLENN MACK AINSWORTH.PHILIP M. BROWN.NELSON P. BUMP.EDWIN G. BURROWS.PHILIP DOREMUS.WALTER LANE HARDENBROOK.ALBERT BLANCHARD KELLOGG.HENRY PRATT MCKEAN.LOREN RAY PIERCE.HARRY RAPHAEL SAFTEL.ROLAND EMERY PACKARD.HOYT SHERMAN.Introduction.The officer of to-day has big problems to face at short notice. Histraining has necessarily been so intensive that he cannot absorb alarge amount of it. He has little time to make out schedules or evento look over the hasty notes he may have made during his trainingperiod, yet he finds himself facing problems which force him toimmediate action.This book so condenses and systematizes general military instructionand the work done at Plattsburg so that it may be easily utilized intraining other troops. No broad claim for originality is made except
in the arrangement of all available material; the bibliography makesacknowledgment to all texts so utilized. Besides bringing helpfulreminders to new officers regarding the elements of modern warfare,much of the material will be found of radical importance, as it ispractically new and never before condensed. Since under the new armyorganization the platoon leader virtually has assumed the roll of acaptain of a company, it is not enough for him to know simply his ownpart; he must be ready with all the information that hisnon-commissioned officers and men should know, and more importantstill, he must know how to teach them. Having little or no time towork over and digest for himself this mass of new material pouring inupon him, the officer may find in this book, material condensed andalready arranged.It is hoped that this work will serve to recall to many officers,valuable points of military training which would otherwise be lost,to them in the mass of notes never looked at since the day they weremade. More than this, every reader will find help in planning hiswork, saving thereby precious hours already too full of necessaryduties, and will find fresh material for progress in the game of war.It is the purpose of this book to help men who are in the service ofthe United States, and through them to share in bringing victory.Table of Contents.PAGE.Chapter 1.
