This book is an important and must have classic. For those that think that contemporary maneuver war has been replaced by post-modern insugency, don't bet the farm on it just yet. Certainly Mr. Lind in recent years has taken serious heat for his unconventional views ( no pun intended) on warfare; and if you are familiar with some of the controversy or have read his material you must set all that aside and buy this book anyway.
Despite the fact that this author does not have military experience, in hindsight, as a career soldier, I wish now that I would have had the benefit of this book when it was first published in 1985. This book is clearly written, provides first class examples and is the best book on manuever warfare, bar none.
If you are exploring insurgency and asymmetrical warfare you will still need this book.
For students of insurgency and terrorism you will need to buy this book and think about what the author conveys in terms of asymmetrical warfare, you will have new and wonderful revelations about the conduct of insurgency if you do.
Somehow he has distilled the famous all day slide brief ([...]) and extended it to the realities of land warfare. It's ironic that the Marines are most closely identified as having learned the lessons of Col Boyd, USAF. The Marine's pride is boundless, but it seldom keeps them from appropriating anything useful that happens to come into view. In this case it was some precious jewels.
Others, with far more military knowledge have commented on the applicability of these comments to warfare. I agree with others who have demonstrated that these concepts have a place in business, political campaigns and sports.
A final recommendation is that this book is a great read for anyone who watches and listens to the news. It will help the reader to understand what some of our troops are doing. As a small example, after the start of the Iraq war the press was filled with reports of Marines pressing ahead for days, without sleep, food and in some cases water. To the generals of CNN it seemed to be military incompetence, but to someone who read Lund it was evidence of success.
Highly recommended along with a download of the Boyd slides noted above.
