Team Able was made up of two riflemen scouts whose job it was to locate the enemy, team bravo comprised of the BAR man and three riflemen whose job it was to open heavy fire, and team Charlie made up of five riflemen and the squad leader, who would then make the assault. US infantry often used the squad column, skirmish line and triple subgroup formations to achieve their objectives. The squad leader and BAR man led the squad column and this formation helped the squad get into position quickly under the cover of darkness, smoke, or fog.
In the triple subgroup formation, an assault was done whenever possible and subgroups acted almost independently of each other. Often such missions depended highly on the initiative of squad members.

Offensive attacks usually consisted of a main and secondary attack and the situation on the ground would determine the strategy of attack. The Able team executed the main attack while Bravo team mounted an often diversionary secondary attack and Charlie team fought off counter attacks and intensified support in the event of a breakthrough. The main and secondary attacks took place simultaneously so that the enemy could never quite concentrate their defense on any one point.
The US infantry depended heavily on their weapons company made up of large war tanks, military grade aircraft, bazookas and antitank guns. The infantry squad turned to the tanks for help when faced with well fortified enemy opposition especially in trench warfare where visibility was low and partly, for this reason, it became the norm to assign tanks to all sizable infantry formations.
