"This paper describes a methodology for modifying a combat training simulation model to include a comprehensive data structure and computer software, to allow the model to be implemented on a microcomputer. It begins by developing a topology for combat simulation models and proceeds to define a data structure suitable for describing military units and facilitating the varied aspects of the simulation. An eclectic approach to the development of the model and the implementing software is followed throughout. Appropriate aspects of a number of models are incorporated into a single model suitable for training military commanders and their staffs. PASCAL, a general purpose programming language, was selected to implement the model on the microcomputer because of its flexibility and availability, and its procedural orientation which supports modular development of the software system and invites further enhancements to the model"--Abstract, page ii.
