Abstract:

This handbook was prepared by former battalion commanders while students at the US Army War College, Class of 1984. This document does not convey official Army doctrine nor does it prescribe the authority and responsibilities of the battalion commander. It does present, however, a synthesis of the vast and varied command experience of the authors. This book is about soldiers and soldier-related challenges. It is not a recipe for command success it is merely a guide. Our mission as a commander is to promote a command climate which fosters teamwork and commitment to every mission or task the unit may be required to undertake in peace or war. While this handbook was written primarily for the newly-selected battalion commander it is applicable at all levels of command.
