Abstract:

The basic question is how the unit commander can operate in a nuclear atmosphere and how this differs from the conventional atmosphere. A literary search was conducted in order to develop authoritative opinions on the nature and purpose of leadership and nuclear tactics, this was limited to command at battalion and lower. The information developed was considered in view of training the individual soldier, nuclear tactics and feasibility of operations, and mission accomplishment. It was concluded that unit commanders can operate on the nuclear battlefield by use of intelligent training and flexible adaptation to changing situations.
