    Mechanics of Company Command will absolutely prepare a young officer to master all management requirements needed to achieve efficiency in his/her company.

This book should be mandatory reading for anyone assuming command of a company—it is that good! —John G. Meyer, Jr. MG (Ret) U.S. Army

    Prior to grasping that guidon from the Battalion Commander, the newly minted company commander must read Mechanics of Company Command! This book is filled with common sense approaches to the challenges facing new Commanders. Where was this book when I assumed Company Command in 1979? —LTG(R) James Pillsbury

Every Officer and Senior NCO should read this book and apply its sage and sound advice. Once read, it should be kept within arm’s reach. —COL(R) Ronald Isom
