Abstract:

On the basis of party and government decisions on questions of control, an analysis of the changes that have occurred in the means and methods of conducting combat operations and the organization of troops, as well as the experience in past wars and postwar exercises, this book brings to light general theoretical principles for tactical command and control, and indicates the place of the theory of control in the overall system of military theoretical knowledge and its relationships to cybernetics and other sciences. At the same time, the book makes practical recommendations on implementing the main functions of command and control of subunits by commanders and staffs in various types of combat operations with modern technical control equipment. The book is intended for officers and generals of the Ground Forces, those studying at military educational institutions of various levels, reserve officers and students in civilian institutions of higher learning, and those studying command and control questions in the system of non-uniformed-service training.
