Abstract : This study is a historical comparison and analysis of individual infantry training program development of the United States Army during World War I and World War II. Each period is examined using available historical records and by focusing on three areas of program development. The three areas studied are-- (1) factors affecting program development, (2) organizations responsible for training, and (3) individual training program development and evolution. The study identifies similarities and traces the evolution of training programs from the United States entry in World War I through the development of the final individual training program after victory in Europe in World War II. The study is useful in providing an example of adaptation to change, as shown in the development of training programs of World War I, and an example of improvement to existing programs, as shown in the development of training programs of World War II.
