Battle Book:

BattleBook (PDF)

The purpose of a battle book is to provide cadets a portable handbook to carry while in the field. Within the battle book there is an OPORD shell, Call for Fire card, 9 Line MEDEVAC card, radio reports, and more.

*The battlebook is a PDF document that is ready to print. Every-other page is staggered so it is lined up correctly front and back. Feel free to make changes to the document to better fit your style of briefing/executing tactical lanes.

Steps to make these pages into a book:

  1. Print off pages.
  2. Hole-punch the pages on the left side, top and bottom.
  3. Laminate the pages (Copy and Print Center in the Union can do this for a few dollars).
  4. Purchase binder rings (can be purchased in the Uwyo Bookstore).
  5. Attach pages to the rings. Put them in an order that is convenient for you.
