LWD 3-3-7: Employment of Infantry

By Army Knowledge Centre February 13, 2019


LWD 3-3-7 is the Australian Army's doctrine on Employment of Infantry. It can be found at the following link.

The aim of the publication is to describe the capabilities of infantry in order to provide an understanding of its contribution to the comprehensive range of military activities within a ‘whole-of-government’ approach to national security. This is the capstone publication for infantry as part of the Land Warfare Doctrine Operation Series.

Written for new members of the Army, it provides corps non-specialists with an understanding of the capabilities of the organisation and its raise, train and sustain role. This publication is a useful reference for government and non-government agencies working with the Army.
