Light Infantry Tactics for Small Teams

Folks looking for a comprehensive and usable guide for the post-political tactical environment should strongly consider this book, which gives people without infantry backgrounds many of the basics in moving you and your team from point to point.

Taken together with this classic, you and your friends will have much to study.

Tempus fugit.

I have found this book to be poorly written. Hand and Arm signals are wrong and some of the very basic tasks are not even covered. After being a veteran of 14 years serving both active duty and guard and reaching the rank of CSM of a brigade, this is not how a manual on Light Infantry Tactics should be written.

Author claims to have trained the 10th SF Group while he was a member of the 101st in basic infantry tactics in 1988.

That's funny because I was with the 10th Group and I do not remember a member of the 101st teaching us how to do any basic infantry tactics. It was always the other way around. We were the ones that were teaching non SF personnel basic tactics among other tasks.

This book is poorly written and shows how lacking in the field of basic infantry tactics it is. Hand and Arm signals are wrong and the most basic tasks are not even covered.

Author claims to have trained the 10th SF Group in basic infantry tactics, well the funny thing is that I was a member of the 10th Group during that time and I do not remember him teaching us how to do things. It was more likely we were busy teaching him how to do things.
