The 1862 Army Officer's Pocket Companion

Originally written by William Price Craighill and published in 1862, this amazingly complete book describes in crisp text all the information commanders and staff officers need to know about "how the army works." Includes command organization and administration; principles of employment of infantry, cavalry, artillery, engineers, and signal; logistics (ordinance, quartermaster, transportation, subsistence, and medical); movement of armies; camps and bivouacs; reconnaissance and patrols; order of battle for attack, defense, siege, and retreat; and use of field fortifications, obstacles, spies, and agents. Also included is information on promotions, courts-martial, military honors, and even cooking and the design and use of field ovens.

Hardcover, 320 pages.
