Patrol Order by COL Tom Davis, ISBN 1-884778-02-X (104pg) Introductory offer $7.95 (retail $11.95), is a companion book to the Ranger Handbook. The first 49 pages are a detailed first-person narrative of a ranger patrol order. This excellent, perfect bound work, with its distinctive desert camouflage cover, is written by an officer with over 20 years of Special Operations experience. Writing a patrol order is a critical task in Ranger School as it is in ROTC advanced summer camp and in the Officer Basic Course. This book is designed to give a potential Ranger student and other students a feel for the detail required to accomplish this task.
The Patrol Order is also beneficial for any leader tasked with the responsibility of writing and issuing a patrol order. It reminds the junior NCO or officer of the many considerations that must be taken into account when planning and executing a combat or reconnaissance patrol.
With this book, the reader can organize and conduct both a combat and reconnaissance patrol to Ranger standards. The book details the various duties of every member of the patrol. Even if you have never conducted a patrol, this work will walk you step-by-step through the organization, instructions, and additional duties of all individuals, teams, and elements involved in the patrol.
Also contained in this work are eight pages of "muddy boots" preparatory questions to be answered prior to executing a mission. Finally, the book closes with a fill-in-the-blank patrol order template. This template can be copied and used to tailor the order to a unit's mission and its SOP.
