“The Spirit of the Bayonet”
Informed by his own combat experience in the trenches of World War I, and in our darkest hours of World War II, General George C. Marshall prioritized the revision and publication of FM 23-25, Bayonet. The bayonet, for those with the courage to wield it, serves an important purpose when rushing the enemy in the final yards. This requires will inherent to close quarters combat, best captured in the following excerpt from FM 23-25: The will to meet and destroy the enemy in hand-to-hand combat is the spirit of the bayonet. It springs from the fighter’s confidence, courage, and grim determination, and is the result of vigorous training. Through training, the fighting instinct of the individual soldier is developed to the highest point. The will to use the bayonet first appears in the trainee when he begins to handle it with facility, and increases as his confidence grows. The full development of his physical prowess and complete confidence in his weapon culminates in the final expression of the spirit of the bayonet — fierce and relentless destruction of the enemy.
