Abstract:

The 1991 version of the Battalion Commanders Handbook was written primarily for the recently selected battalion commander. It proves tips on how to transition into command and how to approach some of the more interesting challenges. The Handbook can also be useful to incumbent commanders at all levels as a source of ideas. This Handbook updates the versions produced by USAWC students in the Classes of 1977, 1980, and 1984. The first two chapters address the more common concerns of all new commanders regardless of the type battalion he will command. Issues which are particularly critical before and shortly after assuming command are emphasized, but there is a broad range of memory-joggers which should prove useful throughout an entire command tour. Chapters 3 through 8 deal with unique aspects of specific type battalions. Chapter 9 highlights the very important area of family support.
