Sound Doctrine

Post by tacticalguy » Tue Jun 04, 2013 6:15 am

This is a book by Charles "Sid" Heal. I'm re-reading it for the eleven or twelfth time. I can't recommend this book enough. It IS a tactical primer. If you haven't read it, I sincerely suggest that you find a copy, somewhere. Mine is old and I've used my highlighter all through it.

My pleasure. I want you to remember, it's NOT anything but a short textbook, though. It's very dry. I've had mine since right after it was published. The tenets that he lays down are the basis for ANY well planned tactical operation. He collated and codified a lot of the principles that many of us were taught from various sources.

That's exactly what I like to find. Good documents that contain a compilation of solid foundational information organised in a logical way. Most people seem to hunt for things that are "advanced" or "special" and disregard the basics, then what they and up with is incomplete and disjointed doctrine.
