Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, the Sniper Training Army field manual (FM 23-10) provides information needed to train and equip snipers and to aid them in their missions and operations. It is intended for use by commanders, staffs, trainers, snipers, and soldiers at training posts, Army schools, and…

In the preface, it states:

"Field Manual (FM) 90-13 shows the relationship to corps operations, where appropriate, and includes details for lower echelons to support the brigades. It provides doctrine, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) in one reference to accomplish this special operation. The corps assigns missions and provides the necessary support and equipment. The divisions normally assign bridgehead objectives and control movement across the river. The brigades are the bridgehead forces that execute the crossings, either independently or as elements of a larger force. River-crossing skills and knowledge are highly perishable. As with many other tactical operations, they require constant practice in planning and execution. There are relatively few opportunities to train with the frequency needed to keep a high degree of proficiency in this tough operation. For that reason, this manual includes considerable detail on techniques and procedures. A river crossing is a special operation in that it requires specific procedures for success because the water obstacle prevents normal ground maneuver. It demands more detailed planning and technical support than normal tactical operations. It also features specific control measures to move the force across a water obstacle. This obstacle may be a river, a lake, or a canal. Unlike other obstacle types, the water obstacle remains effective during and after the crossing operation."

Some highlights of the contents:

Hasty Crossing Operations * Deliberate Crossing Operations * Retrograde Crossing Operations

This manual is produced by US Army Engineer School at Fort Leonard Wood.

As a bonus, this reproduction includes FM-1, The Army Field Manual, a capstone manual containing the vision for the Army - sold separately for $5.99. FM 1 establishes the fundamental principles for employing Landpower. The most important of these are the Army's operational concept and the fundamentals that support it. They form the foundation for all Army doctrine. All Soldiers should understand and internalize them. FM 1 describes the American profession of arms, the Army's place in it, and what it means to be a professional Soldier.
