Tactics of the Crescent Moon: Militant Muslim Combat Methods

Availability: Ready to download

This book is still 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 "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 method is best countered by "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 still practices a "higher-tech" version of 2GW (killing as many enemy as possible). How to operate the latest equipment takes up so much of the young infantryman's day that he never learns how to sneak up on an expert defender. He and his buddies don't become any less visible by donning advanced electronics, so their traditional small-unit maneuvers remain just as predictable. Instead of historical artifacts, all Posterity Press books should be viewed as vehicles of long-overdue change.

    Amazing book that shows how young Muslim youths with basic weapons has defeated the two greatest power in modern history. First they defeated Soviet Union in Afghanistan and later they defeated America in Iraq and Afghanistan. By reading this great book you will get a comprehensive look on how Muslim Militia fights and how they defeats countries far more stronger than them.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book on the history of small unit tactics in the Middle East and the lessons to be learned regarding bottom up versus top down unit tactics. Highly recommend. Really enjoyed the chapter of Chechnya.

    Really fantastic book on infantry tactics of Muslim fundamentalist factions spanning roughly 100 years of combat, from Gallipoli to the early 2000s. My two criticisms are 1) some of the maps and images are of horrible quality and not very helpful to some of the points the author is making and 2) there is a little naivety about Islam and it's history as a warrior religion that doubles as a political movement, as well as some "assassin" and "ninja" references that are a little overblown to how ins Really fantastic book on infantry tactics of Muslim fundamentalist factions spanning roughly 100 years of combat, from Gallipoli to the early 2000s.

Apart from these two critiques it's a great book and I enjoy the author's writing style. Liked it so much I bought "Phantom Soldier" by the author as well. Should be required reading for infantry teams.

    EXCELLENT! this author is one of my favorites. Have read almost all his work. Touches on the axis of evil with great detail before most "experts" put it together.

    Interesting overview of the tactics of terrorist. Certainly the last chapter on how to counter these tactics gives some insights.
