Success on the battlefield relies heavily on an effective command and control system through which the commander coordinates fire and maneuver to apply the decisive combat power at the critical place and time. This study focuses on the command and control system in use by infantry battalions during the attack in an attempt to determine whether or not there is a requirement for new or modified doctrinal guidance on which the commander can base the establishment of his command and control system. Existing doctrine is compared to current practices in an effort to determine how closely they match and whether current practices are functional from a higher echelons functional perspective.
