Hello guys!

I am PET and I recnetly found out about the Command Ops game. I do have to say that I am very intrigued.
I have a passion for history and I read articles and a couple of books form WW2... but I want to dive deep.

For example I never read something about WW2 tactics. I want to know some general stuff about what would a Brigader Commander (or whatever the rank of a Command Ops player is) does. What will he look for, what would be some of the logical thinking that he might do.

So what would you recommend to read more on this subject?

Also, besides the tutorial, what would you say would be an interesting to start scenario? I also plan to make some videos about this so fast scenarios might be a good idea.

Thank You Guys! <3

Whooow. Those are brutal. Anything in particular I should start with?

I have this book in my wishlist exactly to fit that curiosity:

Closing With the Enemy: How GIs Fought the War in Europe, 1944-1945 (Modern War Studies)
by Michael D. Doubler (Author)

Interesting book. I added it to my wishlist. I see that it's not available for Kindle so I will have to buy a print copy of it :(

Look at FM 7-40, Rifle Regiment.

It is the instruction on how a regiment / brigade command should operate in a combat situation.

Then look at FM 17, Employment of Armored Units The Armored Division to look at how an operational commander at that level should use the units at his disposal.

Yes, I have the same problem...being a person who relocates with ease it definitely disturbs me to buy paper books nowadays...

I have it on my Kindle. Look at Amazon for
Busting The Bocage: American Combined Arms Operations In France, 6 June-31 July 1944

Its also much, much cheaper.

Great book on tactics. When things went right in WWII.

All the best,
