Abstract:

The Combat Leaders Guide CLG is a standardized job performance aid for leaders to use during periods of high stress and fatigue in continuous combat or realistic combat training. The pocket-sized handbook contains tasks from soldiers manuals and other training materials in easy-to-read checklist format. It is made of waterproof and tear-resistant paper and is fastened with rings that permit insertion or deletion of material. The handbook offers fast information retrieval, can be personalized to individual and unit needs, and can be used under low light and in inclement weather. The CLG is a generic guide and requires little updating. It has shown its usefulness in supporting unit readiness by providing a leader with doctrinal, tactical, and technical materials in a quick-reference format. The CLG helps overcome the effects of performance decay over time by providing a memory jogger for trained soldiers. The original CLG was printed as a test item in 1986 a second edition was printed in 1987 and reprinted in 1990. Based on the many requests for CLGs from units deploying to Operation Desert ShieldDesert Storm, the CLG was revised and printed a final time. The updated edition, Combat Leaders Guide Leader Handbook, has been reduced in size but contains all the same material.... Leader handbook, Combat Leaders Guide CLG, Leader guide.
