Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 Being able to effectively communicate using maps, charts, and symbols is an integral part of any military operation. Even in peace, it is essential to know about one’s own capabilities—the number of available soldiers, how they are organized, the type of weapons they have, their capabilities, and where they are located. In times of conflict, it’s just as important to have the same information about one’s opponents. The system contained in the U.S. Department of Defense Handbook of Military Symbols (based on MIL-STD-2525C) is designed to eliminate conflicts within various symbol sets and to establish a core set of common symbology under one Department of Defense standard. This standardization is essential during joint service operations, and this edition has been edited by Colonel Peter T. Underwood, USMC (Ret.), to cover the topics and symbols most useful to military and civilian readers alike.

Whether you are interested in following current military operations or studying wars and battles of the past, or are simply active in military gaming, this volume is intended to provide a quick and convenient source to reference the major symbols for ground, sea, and air combat units; weapons types; and the combat operations they execute. So, whether a novice to military map symbols or a seasoned veteran simply sharpening your memory, you’ll find an invaluable source of reference to identify units from infantry squad to Army Group; individual aircraft to Squadrons and Wings; and single ships to Naval Task Forces.
