To get help on Git commands, you can run the following:

git help <command>

where <command> represents the command you are interested in seeing help for.

Examples

To view help for the add command:

git help add
...
DESCRIPTION
This command updates the index using the current content found in the
working tree, to prepare the content staged for the next commit. It
typically adds the current content of existing paths as a whole, but
with some options it can also be used to add content with only part of
the changes made to the working tree files applied, or remove paths
that do not exist in the working tree anymore.
...

Viewing help on the browser

To view the help information in a browser rather than terminal, use the -w (or --web) option:

git help -w <command>
