One working paper dealing with cohesion in Army units. This research investigated the dimensions of cohesion, intensity of cohesion and relation of cohesion to soldiers attitudes and behaviors at squad, platoon, company and battalion levels. Results suggested that cohesion was unidimensional, especially at squad and platoon levels. At company level there was a tendency for the three dimensional model to fit the data while at battalion level neither model provided an exceptional fit. Cohesion was more intense below than above platoon level. Also cohesion was equally and moderately positively related to soldiers career intentions, satisfaction with the Army, and morale at all four levels.
