OK, I just read the post re: "Combat & Survival Books." What are your nominations for the best books from which to learn REALLY GOOD STUFF? I'll start with several: Infantry Attacks, by Erwin Rommel Black Hawk Down, by ______ (I should know this ... Boward?) Strategy, by B.H. Lidell Hart Art of War, by Sun Tzu Others? Army field manuals are OK, too ...

"[b]The Soldier's Handbook[/b]" by Col. Anthony Herbert, (ret.), not sure if this book is available as mine was purchased a long time ago. Any of Col. David Hackworth's books, "[b]About Face[/b]", "[b]Hazardous Duty[/b]" or "[b]Price of Honor[/b]". Those whom ordered original copies of Hack's books also got a combat primer (sorry I can't remember the title) included w/ the purchase which has very extensive tactical info on squad/platoon field movement as well as company and larger force tactics, very good info. "[b]A Rifleman Went To War[/b]" by Herbert McBride "[b]Marine Sniper - 93 Confirmed Kills[/b]", by Charles Henderson & E.J. Land. Mike
