Infantry and Cavalry School Lectures 1898-1910
As part of its ongoing preservation efforts, the Combined Arms Research Library has digitized lectures given at the School for Infantry and Cavalry (now the Command and General Staff College) from 1898-1910. The lectures are interesting statements of Army doctrine in the time frame before World War I. Some of the lectures were given by young Captains and Majors who later became better known, including Douglas MacArthur and William "Billy" Mitchell. They are listed below by topic.
