Abstract : Armor in Battle continues the Leadership series of publications by the Command and Staff Department of the US Army Armor School at Fort Knox, KY. Although the majority of military history is written at the division, corps and echelons above corps level, small unit leaders can best learn from military history at an applicable level - Small Unit Actions. The emphasis in this volume is the Small Unit Armor actions. Examples are cited from the history of Armor and Combined Arms Warfare dating from World War 1 to the 1973 Arab Israeli War on the Golan Heights.
