Dragon Days: Time for 'Unconventional' Tactics
Dragon Days Time for 'Unconventional' Tactics Author:H. John Poole, Mike Leahy (Illustrator) This book shows how to control a contested region with squad-sized outposts. North Vietnam and Iran have done it. Now, North Korea may try to consolidate the South with such a strategy. Scores of tiny Western outposts could do this too. — After a short threat assessment, Dragon Days describes what a single U.S.... more » rifle squad must do to safely accomplish such a mission in Asia. It will need the following Unconventional Warfare (UW) skills: (1) some police procedure; (2) obscurely defending; (3) finding an enemy weakness; (4) making a secret approach; (5) disguising the attack; (6) precluding a counterstroke; (7) rural E&E; (8) enhancing rural terrain (9) urban E&E; and (10) enhancing urban terrain.
Because of Asia's bottom-up culture, the little picture is where such an ability originates. This heavily illustrated book contains more small-unit perspective than any U.S. govt. publication. In fact, it may still constitute America's only UW tactical-technique manual.« less
