I started this book late one night and continued until early in the morning. It is truely "An Interactive Exercise In Small unit Tactics and leadership." As a voracious reader of military history, I've become accustomed to knowing the outcome before I begin reading. This has made me see all the actions of the men who were "there", through the lens of hindsight. At my first attempt to accomplish the assigned mission, I made several assumptions that got me killed only a few chapters into the book. My (false) confidence was shaken. This is the way it works. You play the part of a 2nd Lieutenant, recently graduated from the Miliatry Academy. He's commanding his first Platoon and he faces the same challenges that all small unit leaders face. At the end of each chapter, it gives you several choices to make and you go to the chapter that matches your choice. The choices are not always easy or clear cut. In some chapters you roll dice too decide what course of action to follow. This added element of chance more than once led me in a direction I would not have chosen to go in. I suffered the frustration of having to carry on even though information and options were limited. Just like in real life, I still had too make decisions and preperations in spite of the limitations. As every small unit leader knows, this is normal but very difficult to train for. The book is a great tool for understanding infantry combat and the stresses that a leader faces. It is not just for the novice, I would recommend it too anyone, even field grade officers who have forgotten how combat works at the company level.
