US Army Counterinsurgency Handbook
US Army Counterinsurgency Handbook - Intelligence-Rules of Engagemenet-Operations-Airpower-Leadership-Reconnaissance - Department of Defense.
Now, more than ever, our armed forces are facing new kinds of wars fought with new kinds of tactics by a new kind of enemy. We no longer face huge armies with clear battle plans and objectives. Instead, in places like Afghanistan and Iraq, we are fighting smart, tough, insurgents who utilize new and developing tactics. Here, drafted by the United States Department of Defense, is the complete manual for dealing with a hostile insurgency - from defining and identiying an enemy to using intelligence and airpower. This handbook covers current and important topics such as: Surveillance, Interrogation, Threat Evaluation, Reconstruction, Political Participants, Leadership, Ethics, Linguistic Support, Legal Considerations and much more.
Containing dozens of illustrations and charts, this book is written for the soldier but broken down so civilians can understand it. Now journalists, service families, historians, and the citizen can better understand what the U.S. military and its allies are facing in the field and how it plans to win the current and future battles.
