This is actually two different editions of FM 17-100. The first presented was published in 1944 and was the operational guidance used during the American operations in western Europe. The second is the Tentative FM 17-100 (Employment of Armored Division and Separate Armored Units) issued on 29 September 1943. This second work is added because it provides the initial intentions for the abandoned concept of the armored group and speaks extensively to independent armored and armored infantry battalions.
