This Persian Gulf War era manual covers leadership in principle, leadership in action, and leadership in battle. This publication supersedes FM 22-100, 31 October 1983. This is the United States Army's basic manual on leadership. It has two purposes: to provide an overview of Army leadership doctrine, including the principles for applying leadership theory at all organizational levels to meet operational requirements; and to prescribe the leadership necessary to be effective in peace and in war. The principal focus of this manual is on company grade officers, warrant officers, and noncommissioned officers, the junior leaders of soldiers at battalion-squadron level and below. FM 22-100 incorporates the professional military values, the bedrock of the service, that all Army leaders must internalize in the earliest years of their careers.
