Product picture for The Tigers Way: A U.S. Privates Best Chance for Survivalby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
This book is not just fun reading for determined riflemen, but vital self-defense info. for all security ranks and jobs. The Pentagon lost on the ground 40 years ago, and its squad tactics haven't changed much. Herein lie more advanced techniques for every category of short-range combat. They will permit better small-unit maneuvers (and fewer losses) for every intensity of combat. As Western ordnance turned more lethal, Eastern armies came to rely on tiny semi-autonomous elements. Most provide...
Book cover from Tactics of the Crescent Moon: Militant Muslim Combat Methodsby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
This book may still be required reading at Forts Benning and Leavenworth (and some Marine commands), because it fully details the Islamists' yet-to-be-defeated 4GW method. That method is best countered by "truly light" infantry tactics, but America has had only "line" infantry since 1943. Its modern sequel travels mostly by truck and fights mostly with supporting arms. That's because the Pentagon is still practicng a "higher-tech" version of 2GW (killing as many enemy as possible). How to...
Book cover from Phantom Soldier: The Enemys Answer to U.S. Firepowerby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
This book won't please those who have come to believe that wars are won and casualties limited through technology, or that the victor's version of one is always correct. But, all U.S. security personnel should read it. Possibly the West's best treatise on Oriental warfare, it sheds new light on what Asian infantry can do: (1) alternate between guerrilla, mobile, and positional warfare; (2) use "ordinary forces" to engage and "extraordinary forces [infiltrators]" to defeat; and then (3) retreat...
Book cover from Homeland Siege: Tactics for Police and Militaryby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
America is in serious trouble. There's no way all of her internal problems could have been self-inflicted. Yet, many still believe: (1) "al-Qaeda" is her only foe; (2) her intelligence agencies see every threat coming; and (3) her military is the best in the world at all things. This book reassesses the breakdown from a "bottom-up" perspective, as that's how Islamists, Communists, and criminals like to take over. The tiniest of clues have been collected to arrive at the most likely suspect....
 
Book cover from Strategic Rifleman: Key to More Moral Warfareby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
There are two types of riflemen in this world: (1) “heavy” as in America, who mostly know how to use their weapons and follow orders; and (2) “light” as in most U.S. adversaries, who are adept at maneuver and allowed to use more initiative. In any one-on-one encounter, light “trumps” heavy. That’s why this book has been written -- to give the average U.S. enlistee some way to broaden his own infantry knowledge. No U.S. commander would object to this extra learning for it gives...
Book cover from Sinoland: The Subversion of Freedoms Bastionby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
Perhaps Russia was only the scapegoat for another foreign attempt to influence the last U.S. election. To the extent that Washington has already allowed Communist China to interfere with America's internal functioning, it has placed the personal freedoms of all U.S. citizens at risk. "Sinoland" contains partial proof of PRC manipulation in 34 different subcategories of what the Chinese People's Liberation Army has been calling "Unrestricted Warfare" and U.S. military experts refer to as the...
Book cover from Tequila Junction: 4th-Generation Counterinsurgencyby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
Don't recognize this drug-funded Maoist army? Its operatives have been busy in at least nine Latin American countries. Bringing an end to America's white-heroin deluge may take temporarily reinforcing -- with a lone U.S. infantry squad -- a few police outposts in Colombia, Panama, and Mexico. After briefly noting the extent of criminal, Communist, and Islamist subversion throughout the region, this book shows the Unconventional Warfare (UW) techniques that 14 isolated GIs might need to vie with...
Book cover from Global Warrior: Averting WWIIIby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
This book is for all U.S. special operators in search of foolproof assault, defense, and E&E technique. With many of their counterparts in South and East Asia already light-infantry experts, such a quest is very wise. Though published in 2011, Global Warrior contains three timeless answers: (1) the most detailed study in existence of Pakistan's internal strife; (2) a fully tested/refined way for each U.S. unit to develop advanced tactical techniques for the specific circumstances it expects to...
Book cover from Afrique: A Warning for Americaby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
Afrique offers a detailed "in-theater" intelligence brief on the extent of Chinese expansion in Africa. In the process, it uncovers several disturbing facts: (1) how America's current heroin deluge is due to a largely unimpeded drug conduit across Africa; (2) how the 1994 Rwandan genocide still goes on in the Eastern DRC; (3) how freedom has hit the skids in South Africa; and (4) how the U.S. has been deprived of natural resources essential to its own defense. But, at the same time, this book...
Book cover from Expeditionary Eagles: Outmaneuvering the Talibanby H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
The NATO contingent hasn't been forced from Afghanistan by Muslim radicals, but by drug runners. The Haqqani Network responsible for many of the highest visibility Kabul attacks is one of the oldest drug cartels in the region. With the supply of heroin on the rise in America and Europe, one has to wonder how much organized-crime lobbying had to do with the final defense strategy. Only with less smuggling of drugs out and ordnance in, can the problem be solved. Both have been broken down into...
