Excerpt from Elements of Military Science This little book is intended primarily for the students of such of our colleges as enjoy the services of instructors detailed from the Army. It is intended, therefore, for pupils who are not familiar with that complicated machine, a modern army. Hence an attempt has been made to present plainly and clearly, under the form of question and answer, the main points of the art military. It has been thought best to omit the subject of Strategy, as that is essentially a study for generals rather than for soldiers and subordinate commanders. Resting, as this book does, on "Organization and Tactics" and "The Service of Security and Information," it is thought that the instructor can draw upon these sources for such illustrations, historical and other, as he may think suited to the requirements of his classes. By following this course, the pupil will have before him at all times the essential principles, while their application and illustration will be furnished by his instructor. For the section on Fortifications I am indebted to the "Manual of Military Field Engineering," prepared at the United States Infantry and Cavalry School. I wish here to express my thanks to First Lieutenant C. DcW. Willcox, 7th Artillery, for valuable assistance in the preparation of the following pages; indeed, a great part of the preparation of the work has been delegated to him.
