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, mortars, mines, anti-tank tactics and their evolution, and motorized infantry (including the role of armor).

This Osprey volume in the Elite series does a nice job or providing a sense of tactics at the company/battalion level. Nice illustrations and photographs provide useful context.
