In keeping with Winston Churchill’s prophetic comment that ‘Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it’, Winston & Bronston Clough’s guide makes modern Soldiers keenly aware of the TTP’s practiced and honed by the specially trained reconnaissance teams in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

This book provides a single source for military professionals of all branches to derive practical lessons-learned from decades of relevant patrolling expertise. I have never seen anything this comprehensive… Whether you are an experienced warrior looking to hone your knowledge, or training your Soldiers or Marines before a deployment, this guide will help prepare you and your unit to cross the LD.

Two proven combat veterans share two generations of actual experience on patrolling and weapons… It should be mandatory for every combat arms leader to have this book in their professional library. Without it, they are doing a great injustice to the Soldiers they lead.

The Clough family has done it again! This book is a vault of lesser-taught tips for survival on patrol. It teaches time-honored concepts such as how to properly care for the feet—which in the modern age is a lost art, where most Soldiers are reliant on gimmick products. The rucksack and load bearing equipment advice are key to successful back country excursions.
