Here's one for America's finest- her infantrymen and special operators When cut off and surrounded in Iraq or Aghanistan, they could fight and escape like guerrillas. For the first time in America, there's an unconventional warfare "tactical techniques" manual that has been developed specifically for them. It's called "Dragon Days: Time for 'Unconventional' Tactics." Through 162 illustrations and many examples, the author of The Last Hundred Yards explains how a tiny U.S. contingent could fend for itself when all else has failed. Retired Marine Maj.Gen. Ray "E-Tool" Smith agai n writes the foreword and highly recommends Dragon Days to all infantrymen and special operators. Retired Marine Gen. Anthony C. Zinni (the former head of CENTCOM) calls it "another brilliant manual" by an author with "expertise in unconventional warfare." Covering events as recent as September 2007, Part One of Dragon Days additionally discusses the extent to which the Communist Chinese may be supporting or influencing the Islamic militants of South Asia.
"John Poole's writing on small-unit techniques is far advanced over what the U.S. armed forces offer in their manuals and teach in their schools (William S. Lind, father of 4th Generation Warfare)." -- William S. Lind "personal correspondence to the author, August 2007"
