Little has been published on US armored infantry units and tactics over the years despite their key role in World War II. There were a total of 57 armored infantry battalions and two regiments that served throughout the war and in all theaters. Equipped with halftracks, they fought as part of combined arms teams and combat commands alongside tanks, tank destroyers and artillery battalions. Significantly, they were not simply standard infantry battalions provided with halftracks. Their company and platoon organization was very different from the standard infantry unit and these highly mobile, heavily armed battalions fought in an entirely different manner. Using period training manuals and combat reports this book provides an exclusive look at the unique tactics developed by US armored infantry units including movement formations and battle drills.

An extensive compilation of actual battlefield actions from World War One intended to educate the modern infantry officer in the complexities and stresses of warfare. The schoolhouse and maneuver field training for young officers was seen as insufficient and this book was an attempt to show how things rarely go according to plan, and that initiative, intelligence, and a level head were necessary for combat success. Chapters cover obscurity, simplicity, terrain, space and time, mobility, surprise, orders, plans, control, supervision, direction, fire and movement, machine guns, advance to the attack, battle reconnaissance, night attacks, tenacity and optimism, morale, artillery, and more. The examples come from US, German, British, and French experiences.

The most implacable of Napoleon's continental enemies, at the outbreak of war Austria maintained a vast army, but one rooted firmly in the 18th century. Hampered by the inherent conservatism of the hierarchy, the Austrians had to fight the most modern army in Europe. Despite this the regulars, who were drawn from many territories under Austrian sway, performed with great discipline, resolution and stoicism. This title examines in detail the organisation, uniforms, deployment and development of the Austrian infantry during the Napoleonic Wars, covering Line infantry, Light infantry, Grenz-Infanterie, Landwehr militia, and Frei-Corps units.
