In the book ‘Mud, or ‘World War II Infantry Tactics: Squad and Platoon’ and ‘World War II Infantry Tactics: Company and Battalion’, both by Stephen Bull.

And look at ‘The Bren Gun’ by Neil Grant for more on that weapon and ‘Fall Gelb (2)’ by Doug Dilby for. knowledge of tactics, the estimate process, and platoon and squad tech- niques and skills required of infantry leaders include physical toughness, technical knowledge, mental.
