The Army's New Counterinsurgency Field Manual
It's a long read (241 pages), but well worth it if you want to see how the U.S. Army is further adapting its tactics to fight an ever-changing enemy.
I'm assigning a short 5 page essay summarizing the new tactics, a list of recent battles that brought forth these new learned lessons, and how they're being integrated on the battle field.
Due on Friday, so get to work you slackers.

Oh, Man! I'm too old for essays!! May I let it slide this time?
I hope your AL trip isn't really soon. Our temp (near Huntsville) today was 101 - Lord only knows what the heat index was!
