    I think there should be a deeper analysis of where ordinary farmers and goat herders got the knowledge to implemenet there tactics such as how to set up secondary and tertiary IED's and multi point ambushes etc
    Tm 31-210 Improvised Munitions Handbook v3

    Maybe they got it from the Americans?

      And the tactics?
      Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
      Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
      The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
      The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
      The best lack all conviction, while the worst
      Are full of passionate intensity.

            That manual on Guerrilla warfare has been superceded at least within the USMC by FMFRP 12-25 The Guerrilla and how to fight him

              I would have thought that out of everybody, you'd have seen it already!!!

              Hope it's of help!
              Funny. Yeah you would think so. If it did end up at Div/BDE level they didn't push it down to the troop/company level - no surprise there btw. We're distributing it though although this is a much quieter area.

              Staying away from the nasty men, I hope?[/
              I always do. Oh you mean the Taliban? If they get to where I am - S3 Ops then something has gone seriously wrong somewhere. Other than IDF (one on St. Patrick's Day, the heathen bastards) it's been quiet so far.
              There may be only one time in your life when your country will call upon you and you will be the only one who can do the nasty job that has to be done -- do it or forever after there will be the taste of ashes in your mouth.

                I found it over on Arrse, posted by a US marine

                http://www.arrse.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=147071.html

                I'm pleased everyone found it interesting - I thought it looked like good stuff, but a bit beyond me to comment on it. I'm afraid, as a medic in a Field Ambulance I didn't do much infantry stuff beyond the basics. However, if you want a chest-drain and crycothyroidotomy done whilst lying in a ditch, I'm your man!
                'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
                'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
                Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
                He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

                  didnt know you were out, stay safe man.
                  I knew a simple soldier boy.....
                  Who grinned at life in empty joy,
                  Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
                  And whistled early with the lark.

                  In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
                  With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
                  He put a bullet through his brain.
                  And no one spoke of him again.

                  You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
                  Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
                  Sneak home and pray you'll never know
                  The hell where youth and laughter go.

                              They were taught them in the 80s by the SAS when fighting the soviets, which is why they hit convoys and use SOF ambush tactics, in their previous incarnation the Mujahaden were even brought over to Scotland for training.

                              http://archives.econ.utah.edu/archiv...3/msg00112.htm


                              A former member of the SAS told the Sunday Mail newspaper that he
                              helped train Mujahedin fighters at two secret camps in Scotland and
                              another in northern England during the 1980s.

                              Ken Connor said the training helped to transform the Afghan men into
                              a "fighting unit" that inflicted heavy casualties on Russian forces
                              occupying their country.

                              But the newspaper says that some of the same men may now be used to
                              kill western troops who attempt to capture or destroy bin Laden.

                              Mr Connor said one of the training camps was located in mountains
                              surrounding the Criffel in Dumfries while the other was in the remote
                              Applecross peninsula in the West Highlands.

                              He said: "The Mujahedin fighters were already excellent soldiers
                              committed to their cause.

                              "The main thing they lacked was tactical knowledge and battle
                              planning, so we worked constantly on that.

                                Michael Yon published it a while back, he has a link where you can download a .ppt version instead of using that shittty site.
