Infantry Tactics of the Second World War by Stephen Bull

Book Description

Despite all technological advances, final mastery of any battlefield ultimately depends upon the tight-knit group of soldiers trained to manoeuvre, shoot and dig in. This book provides a crucial study of infantry tactics for all the major armies of World War II. From a crack American company attack to the desperation of a Japanese anti-tank team, "World War II Infantry Tactics" places you in the shoes of the soldiers as they fought for victory and survival. Initially examining infantry tactics at squad and platoon level, the authors go on to examine these tactics on a larger scale, applying them to company and battalion level. This is followed with a complete guide to the anti-tank tactics used during World War II.Drawing upon personal memoirs to illustrate individual practice, period training manuals to explain the evolving theories and illustrated with contemporary photographs, diagrams, and colour illustrations of tactical manoeuvres, this book offers a complete overview of the movement of soldiers on the battlefield. This book contains previously published material from "Elite 105: World War II Infantry Tactics"; "Squad & Platoon Elite 122: World War II Infantry Tactics"; and "Company & Battalion and Elite 124: World War II Infantry Anti-Tank Tactics".
