World War II Infantry Tactics free pdf Drawing on contemporary training documents and veterans' descriptions, this book examines the specific tactics used by the men who inspired 'Band of Brothers' and 'Saving Private Ryan'. The tactics used by US, British and German troops are compared and discussed, and the evolution of new weapons and tactics in response to changing fighting conditions in Europe is traced.

Infantry co-operation with artillery and tank battalions is also covered, in this second of two books focusing on World War 2 infantry tactics.
