Doctrine

Army produces doctrine publications and procedural manuals for use in all Army formations and schools. Land Doctrine at Army Knowledge Centre manages the Army Reference Library on behalf of the Chief of Army to ensure all publications are relevant, produced in a timely manner and are accessible for all users. Land Doctrine publishes current UNCLASSIFIED doctrine on this site to improve accessibility to doctrine.

Military Doctrine is the fundamental principles by which military forces guide their actions in support of national objectives. It is authoritative but requires judgement in its application. Derived from a mixture of operational experience, observation and applied thought, doctrine is general in nature and describes fundamentals, principles and preconditions of military operations at the different operational levels.
