Interactive video lesson plan for: Infantry Companies - another natural size of unit

Activity overview:

Why do armies all around the world organise with companies as a basic unit? Perhaps it is to do with the neocortex of human brains.

Here I present my ideas of why the company of around 100-150 men works well as a functioning unit in armies. The reasons are to do with human relationships, trust, fellow feeling, and rapport, rather than to do with rifles, or bullets, or radios.

Figures by Esci, Revell, Airfix, and SHQ.
