The all-new CIMIC Handbook

Dear CMI Community,

great news regarding our CIMIC Field Handbook. It got a huge update! Along with that we also changed the name into CIMIC Handbook.

Why a new handbook?
In order to react faster to changes in the NATO doctrine landscape we created in cooperation with the whole CIMIC community the new CIMIC Handbook as a digital version. This will allow us to keep the handbook always up to date and provide the CIMIC community with a versatile tool they can use all over the globe at all times without questioning the factuality or actuality. Another key feature is the review and comment option which gives everyone the possibility to incorporate new findings which will be reviewed and added.
