Light Infanrty Tactics for Small Teams - The best by far!

Post by AceOClubs » Wed Nov 26, 2014 9:18 pm

This book by Christopher E. Larson is avail. on Amazon.com for under $18 and really has a ton of great tips, tricks and can replace a library of similar topic books on your shelf!

Individual skills (camo, hand signals, land nav), Leadership, Patrolling, Defensive and Anti-Zombie Offensive operations...

Just my opinion, surprised I didn't see it listed here...

Is the information assuming human enemies with guns or zombies without guns? It makes a big difference. In the real world in patrolling you would spread out so you don't take multiple casualties from a burst of automatic weapons fire, grenades, mines or IED's. Against zombie you could be closer when patrolling in order to offer more support if attacked. Although, if a risk of bad humans you may still need to spread out!

Have not read it. Might give it a read. The best IMO:

7-8 (or whatever they are calling it theses days)
Ranger Handbook
The Last 100 Yards

Read and understand those three and you are good on the 95% solution.

But we in it shall be rememberèd—
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother

Yes, if you consider 3-5 feet apart close...lol Shows tons of diagrams with fields of fire and I really think THIS could work very well for our hated enemy zombies. Moving silently with hand signals, camouflage, radio usage and creating codes, etc. Civilian will get a quick and valid understanding of how/why teams use these tactics, the prior-service guys will say "oh yes, I remember doing that!"

I also reference the Ranger Handbook but, the sections on calling support artillery fire and info on helicopters seems a waste...lol

Enjoy!

Googled to get a free copy of 7-8 and it popped up on archive.org in their military manuals section.

Here's a copy of my search of that section of archive.org sorted by number of downloads that produced an incredible number of must haves:

How do you download books from the archive.org site? I seem to be doing something wrong.
