Figure 2-8. Typical Bivouac.
c. A camp is a group of tents, huts, or other shelter set up temporarily for troops
and more permanent than a bivouac. Camps are found in rear areas; they are usually
recognized by a compact and regular pattern. The camps of each country tend to
conform to a pattern, and the experienced IA familiar with the enemy's pattern will have
little difficulty in recognizing it. A study of our own camps will also aid the IA in identifying
the enemy's activities. Organizational size, special facilities, and types and number of
special equipment will indicate the type of camp (Figure 2-9).
