US Army Small Unit Tactics Handbook by Paul D LeFavor


This is a thick book covering a lot of the history that led to the creation of the Special Forces, what SUT are, and SUT in action. This is like the “Ranger Book” on steroids. It can be a lot of information at once but it helps familiarize yourself with a difficult part of SFQC, especially for 18x that often lack experience compared to Regular Army Soldiers

A conceptual overview of all relevant topics of small unit tactics every soldier ought to be familiar with in order to be effective on today’s battlefield. The handbook is categorized into five functional areas; history, doctrine, planning, operations, and common skills.
