I have purchased a BaoFeng UV5R+ radio and am trying to set up a network for my militia div. We also use CB and GRMS/FRS. I would like to learn enough about HAM radio to get my general License. Which publication would be best suited to teach HAM to a dummy!!

https://hamstudy.org/tech2014 and http://www.qsl.net/aa0ni/toc.html/ as well as http://www.qrz.com are great resources to study for all 3 elements of the amateur radio license exams.
Thanks Elcope for responding to MG Hart I did not see his comment earlier. Yes, those are great sites. We have online resources posted on a separate page titled “online study tools”. https://amrron.com/ham-radio-licensing/online-study-tools-for-ham-license/
I used Ham Test Online and it was a great study tool!
Don’t forget the KB6NU No Nonsense Study Guides. I have used these in our one day classes and they are great reviews of the material. I have our students read through them several times as they are getting ready for our classes. The Tech and General classes have free downloads and the Extra is available at a nominal cost. They are really great. http://www.kb6nu.com/study-guides/
