From that hill mass, the enemy can LOOK DOWN YOUR 250. Here's this report, Captain; LOOK INTO this at once, plea 251. Our air support should really be able TO LOWER THE B 252. LUMP TOGETHER all the data on this situation for me. 253. The tank-infantry team MADE A FINE PLAY through th 254. I don't know the correct answer, but I'LL MAKE A STAB 255. We expect division units TO MAKE GOOD on their com 256. The MAKEUP of that task force parallels that of a coveri 257. Five MAN-HOURS are needed to get the truck operating 258. The troops in the counterattack, though successful, were s 259. Clarity in operation orders is only one MEANS TO THE 260. The MEAT OF THE MATTER is contained in the second 261. You're in command now, so don't MESS UP your chance 262. That battalion has been THROUGH THE MILL. 263. He will MISS THE BOAT completely if he overestimates 264. The 20th Infantry, following the 23d Armored, will MOP 265. The leading serials will have TO MOVE OUT of their are 266. Next month I'll MOVE UP A NOTCH from Assistant G3 267. Wait a minute; I've got TO MULL OVER this news awhi 268. The Mobile Army Surgical Hospital will have a lot of NA 269. NEEDLE him with questions to make him talk. 270. We still have a chance, you know, so NEVER SAY DIE. 271. NEVER MIND; I will submit a new plan.

272. The fighting in our first objective was NIP AND TUCK. 273. Don't NITPICK your instructors, they've got a lot to cover 274. NO MAN'S LAND is a very lonely place. 275. He answered that question ON THE NOSE. 276. IN A NUTSHELL. General, we can support your plan. 277. By attacking at 2300 hours, we should be able to catch the 278. You are way OFF BASE on your time and space calculati 279. OFF HAND, I'd say we'll capture 200 prisoners on D-Day 280. Here are some factors to help you which I'll give you OFF 281. This maneuver will keep the enemy OFF THE TRACK o 282. Your plan is OK. 283. The OLD MAN doesn't always agree with his G3, does he 284. The Commanding General is permitted to select his OLD 285. The Old Man is going to put him ON THE CARPET beca 286. We have several new jet planes ON THE DRAWING BO 287. Your landing plan, ON THE FACE OF IT, looks OK to m 288. Right now, he's ON THE FENCE about the two courses o 289. You've got me ON THE HOOK; I just don't know the cor 290. Here is the command post; we're ON THE LAST LAP no 291. Your question puts me ON THE SPOT, but he's my recom 292. During an independent operation, you're pretty ON YOUR 293. They had an OPEN AND SHUT case against the accused 294. Hospital returnees should be reassigned to their old OUTF 295. During a bottleneck, traffic is nearly always OUT OF HA 296. That question puts me OUT ON A LIMB; frankly, I don't 297. I can brief you on the OVERALL PICTURE in ten minut 298. If he refuses your request, you ought TO GO OVER HIS 299. His explanation is OVER MY HEAD. 300. Any weapon will have TO PACK A WALLOP to be effec 301. Don't try TO PASS THE BUCK to me; that problem is yo 302. PASS THE WORD DOWN THE LINE about the possibl 303. This question calls for a PAT ANSWER. 304. The patrol will HAVE the area DOWN PAT. 305. If we try to infiltrate, we'll PAY DEARLY for it in lives. 306. THE PAYOFF of proper fire support coordination is the e 307. G3 has his PEAK LOAD from about 0900 to 1800 hours. 308. What's the matter? You need a PEP TALK. 309. Military history is the Colonel's PET SUBJECT. 310. There are several possible solutions, so I'll PICK ONE OU

311. Our artillery will PIN DOWN THE ENEMY indefinitely. 312. You must PINPOINT your targets when requesting artille 313. Ask for an air strike TO PLASTER that target. 314. If you don't PLAY BALL with us, you can't expect us to c 315. On the defense, we requisition extra Class V supplies just 316. PLAY UP this point in your lecture. 317. An armored division cannot PLOW THROUGH heavily f 318. The General committed the Engineer Battalion to PLUG 319. The Division Commanding General's trailer is A PLUSH 320. THERE IS NO POINT in asking for it; there are none in s 321. The arrival of enemy reinforcements would POINT OUT 322. POLICE UP your area for inspection today. 323. I'll POLL THE CLASS on these three courses of action. 324. According to the POOP, we'll occupy blocking positions. 325. In mountain operations, men become POOPED OUT easi 326. Where is that movement POOFSHEET with the critical p 327. In a meeting engagement, anything can POP UP, so be on 328. A piecemeal attack is made when your' re PRESSED FOR 329. Let's discuss the PRO AND CON of this course of action. 330. Someone ought TO PROD the Old Man into taking action 331. It's no use to try TO PULL RANK on an MP. 332. The enemy had TO PULL STAKES and hightail it. 333. When a unit PULLS OUT by order, it also pulls stakes. 334. If we can PUNCH THROUGH to Hill 201, we've got it m 335. The predawn attack is scheduled TO PUSH OFF at 0317 336. Don't PUSH THE PANIC BUTTON just because we're ou 337. A feint will PUT HIM ON THE SPOT as to where our m 338. If the instructor can't PUT IT ACROSS, he's not doing his 339. PUT OUT AN ORDER in compliance with the Old Man' 340. I'll PUT OUT THE POOP on the overall picture periodica 341. Where's the gimmick in this? Can you PUT YOUR FING 342. Let's not QUIBBLE on the form; complete it without dela 343. Once the overall concept is known, you can begin TO RA 344. Armored forces are most suitable for the unusual RATRA 345. He gets RATTLED when things go wrong. 346. To RECAP briefly, our advance during the past 24 hours 347. This is a typical RECON and fighter airfield on the tactic 348. Let's REHASH the situation briefly; first, bring out all sig 349. The observance section can help the G2 solve the RIGAM

When all defense units are surrounded, THE ROOF FALL 354. He was ROPED IN to help the inspection team today. 355. A brief resume gives you a ROUGH IDEA of past action. 356. With his two assistants absent, the chief was having a RO 357. Our losses to date IN ROUND FIGURES amount to abou 258. There is no RULE OF THUMB to solve all your problem 359. The Executive Officer will have TO RUN the company d 360. The G3 can GIVE A RUNDOWN at any time of all units 361. We'll RUN INTO A STONE WALL when we get to that 362. We're about TO RUN LOW on water; send back for mor 363. The recent sporadic enemy air atacks only show RUN OF 364. We've got them ON THE RUN. Bring up the ammunitio 365. Your job is TO RUN THE SHOW at your assigned positi 366. The Military Government Officer is SADDLED WITH th 367. It looked bad for us for a while, but we were SAVED BY 368. Now I SAVVY the situation. That S3 has lots of SAVVY 369. We'll have TO SCALE DOWN our assault echelon becau 370. The MP is usually the SCAPEGOAT if the traffic becom 371. Visiting four divisions in one day is a TIGHT SQUEEZE 372. Wow, there are three tanks coming; let's SCRAM into thi 373. Our main effort was engaged in a hot SCRAP all forenoo 374. It required 4 days for our S4 to SCRAPE TOGETHER en 375. SCRATCH OFF the two bulldozers on his requisition; th 376. There was only SCRIMMAGING all along the main line 377. I am afraid we are going TO COME OUT SECOND BES 378. Thank you for your explanation. Now I begin TO SEE T 379. There's no SET RULE for each situation. Use your imagi 380. OK, I'll SETTLE FOR one extra truck, although I need tw 381. At the evening briefing, we are going TO SET UP plans f 382. The SET UP of the G2-G3 tent must not be dominated by 383. G4, are all the plans for the forward movement SEWED 384. If we can SHAKE LOOSE that Armored Division, we've 385. I'm a little SHAKY ON my fingers, Dan; can you check t 386.

The ammunition is low, so we'll have TO BE SKIMP 409. Well, you took that hill BY THE SKIN OF YOUR TEET 410. Allow me TO SKIP OVER the next three items; now, h 411. We've got TO SKIRT that machinegun next to get the bl 412. We must SLAM INTO the position with everything we 413. If you don't savvy our SLANG, you will be unable to ta 414.

Don't SLIDE OVER those matters; explain them at leng 418. In spite of our mopping up, many of the enemy will SLI 419. When you are tired and nervous, you are likely TO SLIP 420.

Give me that WHATCHMACALLIT, the one by your lef 522. WHAT'RE YOU DRIVING AT by suggesting a change in 523. We must try TO WHIP the enemy before winter sets in. 524. The Chief of Staff told G3 TO WHIP OUT THE ORDER 525. I'm WHIPPED; a fellow can't work 48 hours without relie 526. This pursuit to the Rhine will WIND UP THIS OPERATI 527. The WORKHORSE in the Pentagon are the Indians. 528. Here's the problem; try TO WORK IT OUT. 529. That WORRYWART will take too long to make a decisio 530.

ecessary TO GO ALL OUT to capture this enemy position. bridge is destroyed, our plans will be ALL SHOT. se you TO GO ALONG WITH that idea; it is very sound. aff worked AROUND THE CLOCK to finish on time.

58th Infantry will be BACKED UP BY supporting artillery. use of the bad roads, the supply convoy had TO BACKTRACK 6 miles. eserve failed, so now we are really IN BAD SHAPE. xpect TO BAG 500 prisoners in the next 24 hours.

BLOW A BRIDGE safely and effectively requires great skill. attack will BOG DOWN if you do not get us more fire support. ehelpmeBOIL DOWN this question to a form in which it can be answered. don't want this whole thing TO BOOMERANG on you. BRASS will inspect us today, so get everything ready. me a BREAKDOWN of your air requirements for tomorrow.

king conditions can be made difficult if you continually BUCK authority. nstructor who tries TO BUFFALO his students will lose their respect. osing flanking movements tend TO BUMP into each other. memorandum will serve TO BUTTON UP the issue.

enemy is trying to envelop us, G2; you sure know how TO CALL YOUR SHOT. radio is on the blink; the operator CAK'T PUT HIS FINGER ON what' s wrong. the briefing, each section will be able TO CARRY ON WITH its work. CARRY OUT AN ORDER efficiently, one must first understand it. plan is OK, but THERE'S A CATCH in it; we haven't enough transportation. will be able TO CATCH the enemy OFF BALANCE at night.

That request has TO GO THROUGH CHANNELS. d staff officers CHECK UP ON' orders being carried out correctly. not gnod TO CHEW OUT a person before others. enemy forces are CHEWED TO PIECES by oor accurate artillery fire. concentrate and your work will be done quickly. It's A CINCH.

roops advanced behind a heavy CURTAIN OF FIRE. ion Artillery is THE BIG CUSTOMER FOR 90-mm shells.

e defense of an extended front, some units may be CUT OFF for awhile. e send this group to Corps, we'll be CUT TO THE BONE. does this mean, G2? Don't keep me IN THE DARK. I transfer him? He's just DEADWOOD in the section. secondary effort will probably only DENT his lines. l have TO DIG OUT these experience factors from FM 101-10. e taken a lot of damage; now it's our turn TO DISH IT OUT. Supple Sergeant will DIWY UP the rations for each company. men in the division are not kept informed; therefore, they DON'T SEE THE FORREST FOR THE TREES.

e final analysis, it's the DOUGHBOY who has to take the objective. out any reconnaissance reports we would be heading DOWN A BLIND ALLEY. as DOWN IN THE DUMPS after receiving the bad news. be going DOWN THE HOME STRETCH in Phase I in 2 weeks . attack through the fortified position is likely to DRAG OUT for some time. ecessary TO DRIVE HOME that point if the class is to remember it. have DRY RUN of this infiltration course this afternoon.Tonight, we'll use live ammunition. DUCK into the nearest building to get away from sniper fire. ge, your infantry battalion is EARMARKED for division reserve. END PRODUCT of this training showed up well in the training tests. doughboys fought EYEBALL TO EYEBALL in the enemy trenches.

soperationisofsupremeimportance;noonemustFALL DOWN ON his job. leading battalion will FAN OUT to cover our advance. n't MAKE A FEDERAL CASE out of this matter; it's not so very important. job of division is TO FEED G2 information on daylight movements of the enemy. who cannot decide one way or the other is ON THE FENCE.

General committed the Engineer Battalion TO PLUG THE GAP. rch there WITH A FINE-TOOTHED COMB for the missing reports. at's your estimate, G3? You ought TO HAVE it AT YOUR FINGERTIPS. General wants us TO FIRM UP all plans by 1300 hours. en the jeep axle broke, we were really IN A BAD FIX. base of fire serves TO FIX THE ENEMY in place. radic firing is expected TO FLARE UP all through the night. f Officers are TO FOLLOW UP on all plans and orders issued.

t man never thinks. His ideas are always FOR THE BIRDS.

ause of unexpected guerrilla activity, all our plans for secrecy were FOULED UP. here's no time to evacuate civilians, it will be necessary TO FREEZE them in place.'l at's that GADGET, Dick? It's' a special tool for radios, John. advance must be GEARED TO that of the adjacent divisions.

u may GET AWAY WITH IT this time, but you won't always be so lucky.

rge, GET GOING on the report; I'll need it in 15 minutes. ou want TO GET IN TOUCH WITH him, call him at his home. use the delay, gentleroen let's GET ON WITH the briefing. r to combat, we want TO GET RID OF all physically unfit men. mptly at 2030 hours, the column will GET ROLLING. n't GET SHOOK just because he's a high ranking officer. have been ordered TO GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD at 2245 hours. and G3 GET TOGETHER WITH each other on all operations. you know where TO GET YOUR HANDS ON any more ammunition right away?

s GIMMICK is causing the bearing to wear away.

VE me A RUNDOWN ON enemy strategy and locations. se newly cut trees in that area sure GIVE AWAY his position. enemy is expected TO GIVE GROUND slowly and stubbornly. bottleneck is cleared up, so GIVE HIM THE GREEN LIGHT.

e's the order, Ed; GIVE IT THE ONCE OVER, will you? orts which GIVE THE HIGHLIGHTS are useful in a general way. morrow he may decide TO GIVE THE NOD TO your suggestion. ou're cut off, don't GIVE UP; we'll get help to you somehow. n't GO ALONG WITH what you recommend, sir. eral remarks to his staff just before entering combat for the first time; "Now we GO FOR RECORD." men have TO GO THROUGH THE MILL to be successful. #REF! u won't have the loyalty of your men unless they know that you are willing TO GO TO BAT FOR them when it's necessary. #REF! hout good leadership, any unit will soon GO TO POT. apid advance may GOBBLE UP any strong points and prisoners of war.

w do you like your new job? IT'S A GOOD DEAL.

n't want anyone TO GOOF on this job. It's too important. yone must work in this outfit. I don't want to see anyone GOOFING OFF. his meeting solves the problem, you've GOT IT MADE. your turn next month for THE GRAVEYARD SHIFT as duty officer.

our pre-planned observation missions were GROUNDED during the snow-storm. re's a GROUND RULE here against such actions. early GROUNDWORK on the plan was performed by the Assistant G3. n't want to GUP UP this job, it's important to my future. doughboy with the rifle is the one who has the GUTS in battle. assistant G4 for transportacion works HAND IN GLOVE WITH G3 on movement. HANDS ARE TIED; I cannot disobey my superior's orders.

as that commander's policy TO HARRASS the troops. e is no HARD-AND-FAST RULE in such a situation. u'd better HASH IT OVER with the Commanding Officer. and the Ordance Officer has a big HASSLE about maintenance. ng the pursuit, our Air Force will HAVE A HEYDAY with the returning columns. ll be a difficult stream to bridge, but the Engineers want TO HAVE A GO AT ITanyway. HAVE AN EDGE over the enemy in firepower. h unit makes daily reports on how much gas they HAVE ON HAND. ee my assistant, I HAVE my HANDS FULL right now. ntenance of vehicles during an attack is always a HEADACHE. e commit our reserve here, our two forces will MEET HEAD ON. t try TO HEDGE on the date the replacements are due; you've got to be more specific.

his turning movement, we can HEM IN the enemy unit. cracked-up plane was left HIGH AND DRY in No Man's Land. HIGHLIGHT of this operation will be the surprise element. purpose of this booklet is TO HIGHLIGHT the slang you'll most often hear. his again; it looks like a HIT OR MISS job to me.

l, let's HIT THE ROAD; we've still got 3 hours to return to the command post.

preserve surprise, we will have to HOLD DOWN all noise. u must HOLD OUT until relieved by the link-up forces. h staff officer must BOLD UP HIS END of the load. he rations don't arrive, the mess officer will be LEFT HOLDING THE BAG. u do not have the authority to act ON YOUR OWN HOOK.

you contact the Battalion Commander by some HOOKUP?

s regimental S3 is really a HOT SHOT on. everything he does. 201st is likely TO HAVE A HOT TIME over on the left. m April 1940 to May 1945, Europe was in a HOT WAR.

your logistical plan looks OK to me; I'LL BUY THAT. ain, your plan looks OK to me; I'LL GO ALONG WITH THAT. uld you like 5 days in the Army Leave Center? I'LL GO FOR THAT. ed 40 trucks, but have only received 25, so I'LL SETTLE FOR THAT.

plans are IN THE AIR since the Old Man received his orders. er we take that last defile, the surrender is IN THE BAG. outstanding requisitions still IN THE MILL are cancelled. an IRONCLAD RULE that subordinates show respect to superiors. u must see the Division Adjutant TO IRON OUT this rotation program. ant a recommendation on this problem before 1700 hours; IT' S ALL YOURS. n't understand why there's no news; IT'S BEYOND ME. at are we going to do about this? IT'S YOUR BABY. (It's all yours.) STRIKES ME THAT we need reinforcements just to be safe. t battalion is out of ammunirion and gas; they're IH A JAM for sure. s report appears TO JIBE with what the observation team indicated. n't be so JITTERY; our plans are well organized. JOKER is that Army can't evacuate our prisoners of war for 3 days. ONE JUMP AHEAD OF YOU: I've already arranged that.

rn your men TO KEEP CLEAR OF that minefield near you. will have TO KEEP CLOSE TABS ON that enemy armored division. EP HAMMERING AT them in that area until we open their line. must KEEP IN MIND our final objectives and our mission. withdrawal, the purpose of the detachment left in contact is TO KEEP THE ENEMY OFF YOUR BACK u have TOKEEPYORFINGERON everyone involved at all times. most important thing in an emergency is TO KEEP YOUR HEAD. n't get excited during the enemy attack; just KEEP YOUR WITS ABOUT YOU. ve got 2 days TO KICK the plan AROUND before deciding on a solution. General went down to the 59th Infantry to watch the attack AT THE KICKOFF. air battle, like ours on the ground, turned into a KNOCKDOWN, DRAG-OUT AFFAIR. tried TO KNOCK OFF the enemy artillery the first day. h all his past experience, he's got the KNOW-HOW to be a good G3.

a former G3, He ought TO KNOW THE ROPES quite well. ought TO KNOW THE SCORE all right; he's not a colonel for nothing. ach new job, it takes time TO KNOW YOUR WAY AROUND. en we blew up all bridges in the rear, the enemy had to make a LAST DITCH. service elements of the division are used in combat only AS A LAST RESORT. Battle of the Bulge was really the German Army's LAST STAND. Air, LAY ON 3 air alert missions for tomorrow's attack. LAYOUT of the comcounter must be efficient and convenient. ore he commits the reserve company, he will have TO LAY THE CARDS ON THE TABLE to the Old Man. art of the staff is detached TO LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR the next operation. u've got TO LAY YOUR HANDS ON more ammunition, somewhere. men should LET OFF STEAM every once in awhile. It's good for them. re late already; LET'S GET GOING back to the division rear echelon. the way, LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT the plan for tomorrow. vedontnothingwrong,sowe'vecompliedwiththeLETTER OF THE LAW. e attack there, we'll only LOCK HORNS WITH his prepared position. m that hill mass, the enemy can LOOK DOWN YOUR THROAT. e's this report, Captain; LOOK INTO this at once, please? air support should really be able TO LOWER THE BOOM on them. MP TOGETHER all the data on this situation for me. tank-infantry team MADE A FINE PLAY through the hole. n't know the correct answer, but I'LL MAKE A STAB AT IT. expect division units TO MAKE GOOD on their combat readiness test. MAKEUP of that task force parallels that of a covering force. e MAN-HOURS are needed to get the truck operating again. troops in the counterattack, though successful, were severely MAULED. rity in operation orders is only one MEANS TO THE END. MEAT OF THE MATTER is contained in the second paragraph. u're in command now, so don't MESS UP your chances.

will MISS THE BOAT completely if he overestimates the enemy strategy. 20th Infantry, following the 23d Armored, will MOP UP the last enemy resistance. leading serials will have TO MOVE OUT of their areas right on time. t month I'll MOVE UP A NOTCH from Assistant G3 to S3. t a minute; I've got TO MULL OVER this news awhile. Mobile Army Surgical Hospital will have a lot of NASTY BUSINESS after the attack.

still have a chance, you know, so NEVER SAY DIE.

fighting in our first objective was NIP AND TUCK. n't NITPICK your instructors, they've got a lot to cover.

A NUTSHELL. General, we can support your plan. attacking at 2300 hours, we should be able to catch the enemy OFF BALANCE. u are way OFF BASE on your time and space calculations. F HAND, I'd say we'll capture 200 prisoners on D-Day. e are some factors to help you which I'll give you OFF THE CUFF. s maneuver will keep the enemy OFF THE TRACK of our main effort.

OLD MAN doesn't always agree with his G3, does he? Commanding General is permitted to select his OLD STANDBY as his Chief of staff. Old Man is going to put him ON THE CARPET because of the serious mistake he made. have several new jet planes ON THE DRAWING BOARD. ur landing plan, ON THE FACE OF IT, looks OK to me. ht now, he's ON THE FENCE about the two courses of action. u've got me ON THE HOOK; I just don't know the correct solution. e is the command post; we're ON THE LAST LAP now. ur question puts me ON THE SPOT, but he's my recommendation. ing an independent operation, you're pretty ON YOUR OWN. y had an OPEN AND SHUT case against the accused. pital returnees should be reassigned to their old OUTFIT. ing a bottleneck, traffic is nearly always OUT OF HAND. t question puts me OUT ON A LIMB; frankly, I don't know the answer. n brief you on the OVERALL PICTURE in ten minutes. e refuses your request, you ought TO GO OVER HIS HEAD.

y weapon will have TO PACK A WALLOP to be effective in this situation. n't try TO PASS THE BUCK to me; that problem is yours. SS THE WORD DOWN THE LINE about the possible use of gas masks.

e try to infiltrate, we'll PAY DEARLY for it in lives. E PAYOFF of proper fire support coordination is the enemy's defeat. has his PEAK LOAD from about 0900 to 1800 hours.

re are several possible solutions, so I'll PICK ONE OUT OF THIN AIR.

artillery will PIN DOWN THE ENEMY indefinitely. u must PINPOINT your targets when requesting artillery support.

ou don't PLAY BALL with us, you can't expect us to cooperate with you. the defense, we requisition extra Class V supplies just to PLAY IT SAFE.

armored division cannot PLOW THROUGH heavily fortified positions. General committed the Engineer Battalion to PLUG THE GAP. Division Commanding General's trailer is A PLUSH JOB as a home in the field. ERE IS NO POINT in asking for it; there are none in stock. arrival of enemy reinforcements would POINT OUT a stiffening defense.

POLL THE CLASS on these three courses of action. ording to the POOP, we'll occupy blocking positions. mountain operations, men become POOPED OUT easily. ere is that movement POOFSHEET with the critical points on the route? meeting engagement, anything can POP UP, so be on the alert. iecemeal attack is made when your' re PRESSED FOR TIME. s discuss the PRO AND CON of this course of action. meone ought TO PROD the Old Man into taking action.

en a unit PULLS OUT by order, it also pulls stakes. e can PUNCH THROUGH to Hill 201, we've got it made. predawn attack is scheduled TO PUSH OFF at 0317 hours. n't PUSH THE PANIC BUTTON just because we're outnumbered. eint will PUT HIM ON THE SPOT as to where our main effort is. he instructor can't PUT IT ACROSS, he's not doing his job, no matter how much he himself may know the lesson. T OUT AN ORDER in compliance with the Old Man's request. PUT OUT THE POOP on the overall picture periodically. ere's the gimmick in this? Can you PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT? s not QUIBBLE on the form; complete it without delay. e the overall concept is known, you can begin TO RACK UP the plan. mored forces are most suitable for the unusual RATRACE in the pursuit.

RECAP briefly, our advance during the past 24 hours has encountered stiff resistance. s is a typical RECON and fighter airfield on the tactical air force. s REHASH the situation briefly; first, bring out all significant new enemy reinforcements. observance section can help the G2 solve the RIGAMOROLE of enemy tactics.

ike that job, sir; it's RIGHT DOWN MY ALLEY. ve made many administrative moves, this one's RIGHT DOWN THE LINE. E SITUATION IS RIPE for our counterattack, General. en all defense units are surrounded, THE ROOF FALLS IN. was ROPED IN to help the inspection team today. rief resume gives you a ROUGH IDEA of past action. h his two assistants absent, the chief was having a ROUGH TIME. losses to date IN ROUND FIGURES amount to about 2,100. re is no RULE OF THUMB to solve all your problems. Executive Officer will have TO RUN the company during the Company Commander's leave. G3 can GIVE A RUNDOWN at any time of all units organic and attached to the division. ll RUN INTO A STONE WALL when we get to that fortified position. 're about TO RUN LOW on water; send back for more. recent sporadic enemy air atacks only show RUN OF THE MILL air activity. 've got them ON THE RUN. Bring up the ammunition ON THE RUN. Joe. ur job is TO RUN THE SHOW at your assigned position. Military Government Officer is SADDLED WITH the problem of the refugee. oked bad for us for a while, but we were SAVED BY THE BELL. w I SAVVY the situation. That S3 has lots of SAVVY. ll have TO SCALE DOWN our assault echelon because we don't have sufficient reserves. MP is usually the SCAPEGOAT if the traffic becomes congested. ting four divisions in one day is a TIGHT SQUEEZE. w, there are three tanks coming; let's SCRAM into this gully. main effort was engaged in a hot SCRAP all forenoon. quired 4 days for our S4 to SCRAPE TOGETHER enough rations for the forced march. RATCH OFF the two bulldozers on his requisition; they aren't available. ere was only SCRIMMAGING all along the main line of resistance. m afraid we are going TO COME OUT SECOND BEST. ank you for your explanation. Now I begin TO SEE THE LIGHT. ere's no SET RULE for each situation. Use your imagination and initiative. K, I'll SETTLE FOR one extra truck, although I need two. the evening briefing, we are going TO SET UP plans for the next day's mission. e SET UP of the G2-G3 tent must not be dominated by the G3 section. That salient will prove to be a SETUP for our flanking fires. , are all the plans for the forward movement SEWED UP? I couldn't see the Old Man; all ($his time was SEWED UP with VIP's. we can SHAKE LOOSE that Armored Division, we've got it made. a little SHAKY ON my fingers, Dan; can you check them? w the picture begins TO SHAPE UP, after this latest poop. You've got to SHAPE UP, or I'll have to replace you.

ate Smith was a SHINING EXAMPLE of a good soldier.

has done well in the past; he should continue TO SHINE. ivities are usually quiet during the MIDNIGHT SHIFT.

students get together during break periods and SHOOT THE BREEZE. en you commit your reserve, you SHOOT THE WORKS. er experience in any job, you get to know the SHORTCUTS.

SHORT OF ammunition. The patrol stopped SHORT OF the outpost about 200 yards. e Old Man doesn't TAKE A SHOT IN THE DARK;heactsonpositiveinformation.

got TO SHOVE OFF to visit the 58th and 59th. ' Old Man is going TO HAVE A SHOWDOWN tonight. SIDELIGHT on this captured material is the relative shortage of carbines verified information may SIDETRACK you in making your estimate of the situation enemy won't give you that dominant position ON A SILVER PLATTER.

Colonel quickly SIZED UP THE SITUATION and then issued his orders. ouldn't act on such SKETCHY INFORMATION. ammunition is low, so we'll have TO BE SKIMPY on it a while. l, you took that hill BY THE SKIN OF YOUR TEETH; it was touch and go. ow me TO SKIP OVER the next three items; now, how about evacuation? ve got TO SKIRT that machinegun next to get the blockhouse. must SLAM INTO the position with everything we have. ou don't savvy our SLANG, you will be unable to take part in classroom dicussions

u HAVE THE WRONG SLANT on it; it's this way. found A SLEW OF enemy troops concealed in a ravine.. n't SLIDE OVER those matters; explain them at length. pite of our mopping up, many of the enemy will SLIP OUT OF THE BAG. en you are tired and nervous, you are likely TO SLIP UP on your job. you have a capable officer TO FILL IN THIS SLOT? UGS were flying thick and fast during the infiltration. turing the final objective was a real SLUGGING MATCH. act, we had TO SLUG IT OUT for 3 hours before overcoming the enemy.

operation was SMOOTH SAILING over the outnumbered enemy. n't MAKE A SNAP DECISION; take some time to study the situation. course of action is TO SNEAK AROUND the end tonight.

ing my absence, my work tends to SNOWBALL.

organize reliefs for our staff; we don't want TO SNOW them UNDER WITH work t find the enemy SOFT SPOT, then reinforce your initial success.

p on the lookout so that your plans don't GO SOUR. ou run the comcenter according to SOP, nothing will go wrong. ase SPELL OUT just what you mean so that I can understand. ual air reconnaissance is used TO SPOT enemy movements. alion commanders during rehabilitation periods SPOT CHECK equipment. as which come ON THE SPUR OF THE MOMENT can be useful.

er a long time at the same job, a man tends TO GO STALE. er 3 days of fruitless attack, both sides decided it was a STALEMATE. ur main effort is likely TO STALL for lack of fire support.

ur weapon is your best STANDBY in a difficult spot. at happened in my absence? START FROM SCRATCH, please. w for the briefing, Gl; you START THE BALL ROLLING. h all those reinforcements, he'll have lots of STAYING POWER against our attack.

ing the foggy weather, all these planes have TO STICK CLOSE to base.

important for a commander TO STICK UP FOR his men. n't STICK YOUR NECK OUT without thorough reconnaissance. re's no STOCK ANSWER in such a contingency. concealed minefield ought to STOP him COLD. down there and STRAIGHTEN OUT that outfit, Captain. 't you STRETCH YOUR IMAGINATION to realize that this is possible. main effort was so strong we took his counterattack IN STRIDE. t's got me STUMPED; what's your recommendation?

ing the night, the new unit is TO SWAP places with the old one. ll just have to SWEAT IT OUT until we know his atomic capability.

n't TAKE A CHANCE with that patrol; the area is covered with mines.

t let your problems upset you; instead, TAKE IT EASY. e you TAKEN CARE OF all details for the relief.

planes need along runway to TAKE OFF; their TAKEOFF isn't fast. Colonel is TO TAKE OVER the regiment today; he will run the outfit well. e are two identical photos; TAKE YOUR PICK and send me the other. ant TO TALK HIM INTO accepting my decision. . atrol is likely TO TANGLE WITH several infiltrating groups ur first report has many details TANGLED UP, but you'll learn. e we get on the paved road, we'll be able TO TEAR ALONG. . ll need a staff conference TO TRASH IT OUT. e court will THROW THE BOOK AT HIM for his desertion. only got 5 minutes, G2, for you to give me a THUMBNAIL SKETCH. interrogation team tries TO TIE DOWN prisoners on specific information which G2 wants. s information ought TO TIE IN WITH what you found out.

ting our column past that critical point of time will be a TIGHT SQUEEZE. ry that serial over the river; TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. you still do it before the deadline? TIME'S RUNNING SHORT. ing the briefing sessions, charts, graphs, and experience tables are great TIMESAVERS. n't TIE YOUR HAND by moving your reserves too early. e you are able TO GET A TOEHOLD, set up the command post. hting hammer and tongs is like fighting TOOTH AND NAIL.

fire on both sides was TOUCH AND GO until our reinforcements arrived. w let's TOUCH ON supply; G4 will be responsible for all rations. Aggressor fortified zone was a TOUGH NUT TO CRACK. Engineer Company is likely TO HAVE A TOUGH TIME putting in the bridge. assistant is becoming very careless; I think I'll have TO TRADE HIM IN. ximum flow and minimum necessary controls in a traffic plan will avoid TRAFFIC JAMS. one can get anywhere; TRAFFIC IS OUT OF HAND. prior to the assault landing, we lost three planes because of TRIGGER HAPPY individuals. attack could very easily TURN INTO a rout of the enemy. e your tanks ready so you can TURN THEM LOOSE at the right time.

ve been reassigned; LT Smith is my UNDERSTUDY. ineers putting up a bridge before the line is taken are working UNDER THE GUN.

t undetected turning movement UPSET THE APPLECART. ng me UP TO DATE on what's happened in the last 4 hours. at's the latest UP TO THE MINUTE news? No change? OK. George, IT'S UP TO YOU and your counterattack; give 'em your Sunday punch. traffic snarl happens, Sergeant, USE YOUR HEAD and send the others on that bypass. e Corps Commanding General and other VIP'S came to present three awards to men in the regiment. e new 280-millimeter gun packs quite a WALLOP, even at that range. we can manage TO WALLOP him with a surprise atomic attack, we've got it made. u can't change that mistake, John; it's WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE. ere are several officers on the Division Supply Staff who WEAR TWO HATS. at clerk is just DEAD WEIGHT in the orderly room. ur reinforcements arrive in time, we should WHALE THE TAR OUT of the enemy. e me that WHATCHMACALLIT, the one by your left hand. AT'RE YOU DRIVING AT by suggesting a change in leave quotas? must try TO WHIP the enemy before winter sets in. Chief of Staff told G3 TO WHIP OUT THE ORDER at once. WHIPPED; a fellow can't work 48 hours without relief. s pursuit to the Rhine will WIND UP THIS OPERATION. WORKHORSE in the Pentagon are the Indians.

t WORRYWART will take too long to make a decision. good classification officer is WORTH HIS WEIGHT IN GOLDwhenthedivisionfirstreceivesitsreplacements. u can WRITE OFF AS LOST 25 percent of the tanks which take part in the attack. YAK YAK caused misunderstandings in the interpretation of the orders. tendency TO YAK at length is not an asset to an officer.

orgotten that point, but YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING THERE. ou'reunderanatomicburst,brother,YOUVE_HAD_IT ZERO HOUR for this attack will be 0130 hours. mission of this battery is TO ZERO IN on enemy artillery positions.
