Fort Benning

by Kenneth H. Thomas Jr., Fort Benning Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fort Benning books, Established outside Columbus, Georgia, in October 1918 by the United States Army as Camp Benning, the base was moved to its permanent location, nine miles south, in June 1919. In 1922, the post was made permanent and was named Fort Benning. Created as the new location of The Infantry School of Arms, Fort Benning became the training post for many of the country's future leaders, as well as a major part of the military experience for hundreds of thousands of American soldiers. The post's current size, more than 180,000 acres, has long made it recognized as one of the largest infantry bases in the world. Named for Gen. Henry L. Benning of Columbus, the installation has had a major impact on the economic and social life of nearby Columbus. Images of America: Fort Benning features vintage photographs and postcards, mostly from 1918 to 1978, showcasing the first 60 years of the base's 85-year history. Included are scenes of the temporary encampment on Macon Road and the early wooden encampment on the Main Post. The permanent buildup from the late 1920s to the early 1940s is shown in photographs of The Infantry School, the Officers' Club, Main Post Chapel, Doughboy Stadium, Gowdy Field, the Jump Towers, Lawson Field, the Cuartel Barracks, and the officers' quarters, as well as Riverside, the Commandant's Home, formerly the Bussey Plantation. Activities and events include military reviews, visits of presidents, and the National Infantry Museum's dedication. Generals who served there and are featured include Bradley, Eisenhower, Marshall, and Patton. This centennial edition features a new foreword by Don Sando, deputy to the commanding general.

Fort Benning Blues

by Mark Busby, Fort Benning Blues Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fort Benning Blues books, Jeff Adams, drafted in 1969, faces a war he doesn't understand. The product of a patriotic Texas family, he knows he could never face his grandfather, the first Jefferson Bowie Adams, if he dodges the draft, so, to buy some time, he volunteers for Officer Candidate School in Fort Benning, Georgia, a six-month-long program designed to prepare young men to lead infantry platoons into the jungles and rice paddies of Southeast Asia. Lieutenant Timothy Rancek and the other tactical officers make it their duty to put as much pressure as they can on Adams and the other candidates like his roommate Hugh Budwell, a calm Californian, and friend Patrick Garrett, a black southerner, to rid the company of the "turkeys" and "duds," the ones the "tacs" think shouldn't be responsible for lives of others. It doesn't take long for the stress to create casualties, as each day brings them closer to the war.

Download An Experimental Review Of Basic Combat Rifle Marksmanship books, Commanding officers in Vietnam and others have indicated that individual rifle marksmanship training needed attention. Furthermore, no comprehensive, systematic study of Army rifle marksmanship has been conducted since the Work Unit TRAINFIRE studies conducted by HumRRO in 1954. Phase I of the MARKSMAN research dealt with basic rifle marksmanship. The report describes a series of 21 experiments addressing both 'what' should be taught and 'how' it should be taught. A number of conclusions were reached concerning such matters as the use of automatic fire, aimed fire vs. pointing fire including Quick Fire, night firing techniques, firing positions, carry positions, aiming points, night sights, multiple targets, area targets, surprise targets, sight calibration, and other issues.
