Companies and battalions were important organizational units among British, German, and American armies in World War II. The book begins with a somewhat vague description of the battalion. But organizational charts on pages 6 (British) and 11 (American) and 12 (German) begin to exemplify the battalion. Key building blocks are companies, smaller units.

The book describes tactical operation of battalions. The work also examines other aspects of the units considered here: machine gun support, mortar
