IN THIS SUMMARY

Being well trained and well disciplined is critical to any successful army, but too commonly training is neglected or conducted poorly. According to Lt. General Arthur S. Collins, Jr., military leaders have a misconception about what training is, and they focus almost exclusively on weapons, tactical exercises, and aspects of military operations – “move, shoot, and communicate.” In Common Sense Training¸ Collins lays out an argument for implementing training techniques to improve military readiness and capabilities, suggesting that personnel and administrative procedures, maintenance, and safety are equally important. These techniques, first published in 1978, were adopted by the U.S. Army to prepare for the Gulf War and are still used today.
