SHTF Tuesday Self-Education Series Book Review: From the Library: The Last Hundred Yards



This book review is for Americans interested in the tactical operations of small units.  The scope of this work, while mostly geared for Platoon sized elements, encompasses techniques that span from individual skills to concepts that are best employed at the Battalion or Regiment (or whatever your affiliated branch or persuasion's equivalent is).

Trojan Horse Politics and Bitter Clingers

We urge you to download and save this video if you have the capability to do so and to share it with anyone you care about. The reason many people don't know about what is really happening in Europe is that videos like this are censored, taken down from social sharing media, and there has been a deliberate media blackout about the reality of life on the ground for the native born population of Europe.  Those who speak out are threatened and "anti-blasphemy" laws are being codified into law, which makes it a crime to criticize Islam or the prophet Mohammed.

SHTF Self Education Series ~ From the Library: A Review of "Civil War Two"

All material published on this blog is copyright and may not be republished or shared without prior written permission from the author and published with full attribution.  

Originally published April 12, 2016.

In 1996, Thomas Chittum published an interesting book that offered a glimpse of a theoretical future America.  In 2016, a mere 2 decades later, it is illuminating and quite revealing to look at where we were when the book was released, and where we are today.  What we are yet to be is a unfinished question.  Based upon analysis of trends and a knowledge of human organization through history, Chittum provides a logical explanation for what he forecast.  While I am not 100% sympatico with his vision of the future, you must give kudos to the man for how close he called it 20 years ago.

Author's personal copy, Amazon photo was too grainy for my quality standards.

SHTF Self-Education Series: Tuesday Book Review from the Library - "Winning Insurgent War: Back to Basics"

What I have for you today dear Readers is a most unusual and irreverent book by Geoff Demarest. It is not a novel, it is not “entertrainment” in the Max Velocity way, it is not a traditional academic paper or policy paper... it is sui generis.

It is about 520-ish pages comprised of 144 individual sections, all focused upon some aspect of insurgency, what insurgents do and what anti insurgent forces should consider. It is not a book that is written to be devoured at one sitting, it is a non stop buffet of thought provoking discussion

Update: Back in stock .. SHTF Self-Education Book Review: Wolves Among the Sheep....

**Bumped:  Copies of Wolves Among the Sheep are now back in stock at Amazon!

** A very special thank-you to long-time member of the Patriot/Liberty community and loyal Reader MaryfromMarin for bringing this book to our attention, and for kindly sending us a copy to review.

Dear ReadersI am reviewing a book today that may be the most important that I have done to date, as it is applicable RIGHT NOW in YOUR life and those around you. Although Dr. Isaac's well researched work approaches the issue of "safety and security" from a different perspective than I do, once I cracked open the covers and read the first few paragraphs I was hooked - and completed reading the book in one uninterrupted sitting.  You should strive to get this book into the hands of as many people you care about as possible.


It is a book concerned with recognition of danger and of malefactors.  On the surface, it would seem to approach the topic from the point of view of solely concerning Churches and other ministry activities, but to dismiss it as such is to do yourself and your loved ones a profound disservice.  I approached this topic with some skepticism and from the viewpoint of a lapsed Catholic life, thinking this was only about Churches.  I was so, so wrong, as it is so much more than that.  The book rewards those with faith in the message itself, not in any specific faith overview.  It is eminently practical advice of great utility in anyone's life.  If you have children, even more so.

Goodbye Poland: Deportation, Internment in Siberia, Escape and Anders Army

Readers here expect a certain type of book to be reviewed.  I have the pleasure here of reviewing my first e-book and I believe that you will find it deeply interesting and informative.

Goodbye Poland by Stefan Maczka is not a typical book in structure or content.  It details the deportation of a 17 year old from the eastern reaches of Poland in World War II, through escape, joining the Polish Anders Army, training in Iraq (I see he was stationed briefly at a base I inhabited!) and elsewhere, up through the Italian campaign and taking Monte Cassino.  The demobilization and aftermath are also covered.

SHTF Self-Education Tuesday Book Review: Patriot Rising - The Unbroken

As we take pause to honor those who have died for our freedom this past weekend, it is fitting that I write today a review of Max Velocity's novel "Patriot Rising - The Unbroken".

I have previously reviewed his other works "Contact!" (non-fictional tactical training manual) and the prequel "Patriot Dawn: The Resistance Rises" (fictional enterTRAINment).

As you may recall from his last book I reviewed, I coined the term "enterTRAINment" for the combination of engaging story line, believable human characters and word pictures of tactics, techniques and procedures that directly relate to the story and its development.  It is a means to train your intellect and sensitize you to the actual conduct of operations and planning that are inherent in any military operation so that when you see the material again, it is not foreign to you.

The copy I am reviewing today is copyrighted by Max Alexander in 2015, and bears ISBN-13: 978-1519738950.   About 400 pages in length, with  appropriate maps and graphics, Max Alexander in true American fashion has published this work himself.  The production value is high, with a sturdy glossy cover and a solid binding that should last for quite a few readings over the years.
