This is the first complete translation of Erwin Rommel’s “Problems for Platoon and Company” into English. Translated by Cyril Koob. Rommel wrote this collection of nineteen tactical exercises for small unit commanders, to help them set up their own unit training. The exercises are excellent examples of German tactical thinking.
