LEADER HANDBOOK 

COMBAT LEADERS' 

GUIDE 

C L G

INTRODUCTION 

The Combat Leaders' Guide is both an 

extract of doctrinal publications and a 

compilation of tactics, techniques and 

procedures(TTPs). It is principally 

designed as a pocket reference and 

memory-jogger. 

Some TTPs you have learned in training 

do not appear here. The material in this 

job aid comes from the doctrinal 

literature program. 

Laminate pages to be written on; 

remove, reorganize or tab pages based 

on your mission; insert other job aids, 

TTPs or SOPs as needed. 

Questions? Call SACG at Ft. Benning, 

DSN 835-5741 LT Kirby, SGT Rose, SGT 

Sparks.
