The #BreakIn is the Cove’s channel dedicated to the development of Sub-Unit Leadership Teams and those wishing to invest in their professional military education.  

Some of the concepts in the #BreakIn can be complex, so to help we have designed a series of introductory guides or 'Intros' like this that are designed to help you ‘break in’ to the subject matter. Here we present the 'Breaking In' to War' intro which has been reviewed by a number of subject-matter experts and key stakeholders to bring you some of the best content available on the subject.  The 'Intros' have been designed to cater for all learning styles. Open the document to unlock content which includes books, articles, videos, blogs, lessons and podcasts. The intros are not exhaustive, we have simply tried to assist you by centralising some of the high quality content available that will assist you in your professional development. For Australian Defence Force members with Defence Protected Network access, you can access the Break In resources and reading lists via the Defence Library Service here.
