This intelligence training manual was the most comprehensive published by the army. It includes references to doctrinal lessons learned in the Vietnam War and discusses the use of modern sensors for collecting information, target acquisition, night observation, and electronic warfare . Appendix A is a listing of all other manuals and regulations on the subject of intelligence and is therefore a bibliography of available army intelligence training literature. The manual contains chapters on the collection, processing, and dissemination of intelligence, and on counterintelligence, with special emphasis on order of battle intelligence, the mainstay of army combat intelligence.
