AMD - Archive of Military Doctrine / US-Army:
Army Doctrine - Old and New, Draft and Final

This collection of US-Army Field Manuals incomplete and provided for educational and research purposes. It contains both publications in force as well as doctrine now replaced or not yet approved. Links provided in Italics lead to either earlier versions or drafts for future versions. However, we cannot guarantee, that the most recent version is online in this collection. Some of these documents are no longer available on the web, others still can be found on official sites. Almost all documents are PDF-Files. Please note, that the structure and the numbering system for Field Manuals has changed more than once during the years covered. Some manuals might be still listed in the wrong subsection.

Readers having access to additional documents (especially elder ones or draft publications) completing this collection are encouraged to email copies to

We express special thanks to Janne Kemppi for his constant and valuable help in making this collection possible complete. Without his support it would be much smaller.

Since 2011 the U.S Army is streamling its training and doctrine publications in accordance with the Doctrine 2015 Initiative. New series of documents have been added such as Army Doctrine Publications (ADPs), Army Doctrine Reference Publications (ADRPs) and Army Techniques Publications (ATPs). Over the years they’ll replace the old doctrinal publications. (For a briefing on the initiative see here) Unfortunately many of the new publications have been placed behind controlled access gates and thus no longer are available to the general public.
