I recall being confused in my youth about what the various parts of an army were - the sections, companies, battalions, brigades, platoons and the rest. Here I take eight minutes to describe the workings of a World War Two British infantry platoon, which serves as a model for platoons from all modern armies. I of course do not waste the opportunity to take a swipe at a few films while I'm at it.
