Creighton Williams “Abe” Abrams Jr. graduated from West Point in 1936 and joined the 1st Cavalry Division. In 1940 he gained the rank of Captain and took command of a tank company in the newly-formed 1st Armored Division. Leading up to the war, he was given command of the 37th Tank Battalion of the 4th Armored Division.
In the prewar months of 1941, Abrams focused on training his men. Even before his men received their first tanks, Abrams had his men take to the training field equipped with imaginary tanks. He instructed that the tank crews must stay together, with an arm on the next comrade’s shoulder, to simulate working together. In this way and others he fostered cooperation and trust between his men.
