USMC Small Unit Leaders Guide to COIN, 2006

Ratings: (0)|Views: 18|Likes:
We are a Nation at war and will remain so for the foreseeable future. To better prepare our Marines for that war, this volume provides a collection of counterinsurgency tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP). These TTP represent the current “best practices” derived from American, Australian and British sources. Written by small unit leaders for small unit leaders, they have been specifically crafted for application at the company level and below. The reader will find variations on style and format between the various chapters and annexes. That is intentional, as the operational demand places greater priority on timeliness of delivery rather than the niceties of presentation.

 small unit leaders, they have been specifically crafted for application at the company level and below. The reader will find variations on style and format between the various chapters and annexes. That is intentional, as the operational demand places greater priority on timeliness of delivery rather than the niceties of presentation. While these TTP provide proven methods for the day-to-day practice of counterinsurgency, they are not intended to be prescriptive. By necessity, our small unit leaders will adapt the ideas presented herein to meet the needs of their own unique circumstances. As the war  progresses, we can also expect the enemy to adapt his TTP—further necessitating continued innovation and adaptation on our part. The “shelf life” of this edition will therefore be relatively short, as continued feedback from the operating forces will provide the means of refining and updating the content of subsequent editions.
