The modern military text, or field manual, has evolved over a period of several hundred years. Historically, military training literature traces its beginnings to the writings of the ancient Chinese, Greeks, and Romans. Until the invention of printing and the advent of general literacy, military instruction was usually oral and not written. In the United States Army, the evolution of the field manual falls into two distinct periods the American Revolution to World War I, and World War I to 1966.
