Overview

Part of our value-added professional format series, the Marine Rifle Squad Marine Corps Field Manual (FMFM 6-5) provides basic guidance to enable the rifle platoon squad leader to fight and lead his squad in combat.

This manual describes the organization, weapons, capabilities, and limitations of the Marine rifle squad. It addresses the squad's role within the platoon and that of the fire teams within the rifle squad. Emphasis is placed on offensive and defensive tactics and techniques, as well as the different types of patrols the squad will conduct.

The mission of the rifle squad is to locate, close with, and destroy the enemy by Are and maneuver, or repel the enemy's assault by fire and close combat. The rifle squad consists of three fire teams, each of which is built around an automatic weapon and controlled "by a fire team leader. The squad is composed of 13 men: a sergeant (squad leader) and three fire teams of four men each. Each fire team consists of a corporal (fire team leader/grenadier), two lance corporals (automatic rifleman and assistant automatic rifleman), and a private or private first class (rifleman).

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.
