The aim of this field manual is to offer a standardized source document for Army-wide reference on map reading and land navigation. This manual applies to each and every soldier within the Army irrespective of service branch, MOS, or rank. This manual also incorporates both doctrine and training guidance on these subjects. Part One addresses map reading and Part Two, land navigation. The appendixes come with a list of exportable training materials, a matrix of land navigation tasks, an introduction to orienteering, and a discussion of a few devices that may help the soldier in land navigation.
