Abstract:

This article provides straightforward, honest advice for future United States Army engineer company commanders. The company commander s battle is personal, intense, and often violent. Whether in garrison or on operations, it is never routine. This document brings together the collective experience of previous company or squadron commanders from the United States Army, United States Marine Corps, Australian Army, and British Army. The contributors have fought in Northern Ireland, Iraq, Bosnia, East Timor, Afghanistan, Solomon Islands, Kosovo, Somalia, Rwanda, and Haiti. They have done the hard yards, made some mistakes, and learned from them. Perhaps their thoughts will be useful as you prepare for command.
