Synopsis

Originally published during the First World War as a reference guide for soldiers, this handy, well-indexed volume explains each and every aspect of the American infantryman's duties and responsibilities in a concise easy-to-understand manner. From bugle signals to rules for guarding prisoners, conditioning exercises to rifle inspection, readers can see how much infantry service and protocol has changed over the course of the last eighty years, and how much has, remarkably, remained the same.
