Length: 193 pages2 hours


Part of our value-added professional format series, the Guard Duty Field Manual (FM 22-6) is for personnel concerned with the organization and functions of interior and exterior guard. This FM has been converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction.

It includes orders, countersigns, parole words, and responsibility of the main guard including duties of personnel and methods of mounting the guard. The manual also discusses the duties and composition of special guards. As this manual is a guide, and as all possible situations and eventualities cannot be foreseen or covered by the manual, great reliance must be placed upon the application of sound judgment and common sense by all members of a guard and by all security personnel. In situations not covered by this manual and where doubt arises as to the proper action to be taken, the individual must consider his mission and apply sound judgment in making the required decision(s). The material in this manual is applicable to both non-nuclear and nuclear warfare. Contents: Terminology, Guard Composition, Interior Guard, Orders, Main Guard, Duties of Personnel, Patrol System, Fixed Post System, Guard Mounting, Informal Guard Mounting, Relieving the Old Guard, Posting Reliefs, Formal Guard Mounting, Special Guards, Park Guards, Exterior Guard, Countersigns, Parole Words.

As a bonus, this reproduction includes FM-1, The Army Field Manual, a capstone manual containing the vision for the Army - sold separately for $5.99. FM 1 establishes the fundamental principles for employing Landpower. The most important of these are the Army's operational concept and the fundamentals that support it. They form the foundation for all Army doctrine. All Soldiers should understand and internalize them. FM 1 describes the American profession of arms, the Army's place in it, and what it means to be a professional Soldier.
