WW2 tactics? Here is something about how squads work during WW2. It covers the American idea but also explains some things sbaout the german and british squads.
You mean squad tactics, or tactics in general? I really admire the moves pulled off, when it's say, an American company vs. a German company; no fancy flanking, just straight in.

The rifle squad
Osprey has published a few books on WW2 tactics that you might find useful, for example "World War II Infantry Tactics" and "World War II Combat Reconnaissance Tactics".
I read this small thing in some website, sorry I don't remember the link to it, but a good tactic to use is to get both squads to fall in, send the assault team to advance to the next cover to see if there are enemies, you stay behind cover with the fire team, if nothing happens, make the assault team advance until they or the enemy open fire, then tell the assault team to suppress the enemy, while the enemy is being suppressed, try to find a good firing angle to send the fire team to, if you find it, send your fire team there and order them to suppress the enemy, get the assault team to a flank while the enemy is suppressed, and flank the enemy.
That is the flanking maneuver in a more complex way, just a little bit more complex. Don't send the fire team to scout, because they have heavier weapons, the assault team is better at that. I hope it helped!
