Preface

This volume has been published in order to provide an up-to-date compilation of the War Department Training Regulations covering the basic subjects for Infantry training. The contents are based on the program of instruction prescribed by the War Department for the first two years of the Basic Course, of the Senior Division of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps. The object of the first year's instruction is to qualify students as privates of Infantry; the second year's course to qualify them as noncommissioned officers.

In the program of the War Department for the basic training, the texts prescribed, with but two exceptions, are the Training Regulations. These Training Regulations are recognized as the best texts for training ever published by the War Department. They contain the adopted methods of instruction which have been the result of long and careful study; the contents are clearly explained and thoroughly illustrated in a manner that leaves little if anything to be desired in the matter of a text for study and guidance.

Chapter I, Military Courtesy, contains the accepted customs of the service as well as the latest instructions on the subject contained in Army Regulations published in 1925. The sections on the Flag of the United States and on the National Anthem are based on War Department publications of 1925.

Chapter II, Physical Training, is based on the War Department Manual of Physical Training, and the illustrations are reproduced therefrom.

All illustrations contained in the Training Regulations included in this volume are reproduced from the originals. Additional illustrations have been provided for Chapter X, Drill and Combat Signals.

In every respect the contents of this book is up-to-date.

The fundamentals of Infantry training contained in this volume are applicable for instruction purposes of not only the Reserve Officers' Training Corps, but of the Citizens' Military Training Camp students, and of the three components of the Army of the United States, the Regular Army, the National Guard and the Organized Reserves.

The widespread demand for a text such as Basic Military Training and the necessity therefor has induced us to produce a book that should prove to be of great convenience and value to both instructors and students of the fundamentals of Infantry training.
