Posterity Press

Posterity Press has now published 14 tactics/intelligence manual supplements. Due to the U.S. military’s “top-down” way of doing things, its tactical techniques (maneuvers for squads and below) have not kept pace with those of foreign foes. While these books often start with how those foes fight, they end with specifics on how this U.S. small-unit shortfall can be fixed. As such, E-5’s & below tend to find them most helpful.  After multi-day training sessions for 41 bns, 9 schools, and 7 special-ops units on how advanced technique can be better acquired through "bottom-up” training, its founder (& author) has arguably become the U.S. authority on light-infantry tactics. Until the U.S. develops more of a light-infantry capability, it should not plan to win any more wars. 90% of all proceeds go to Missionaries of Charity (in SE Asia) and Hands Together (in Haiti).

[skill of our special-operations units] and the high-tech capabilities we are developing.  That gap has grown larger as we refuse to invest in our ground forces and make them more capable to meet the demands of today’s battlefield.  John Poole offers a unique and creative solution to fill that gap in Strategic Rifleman.”
                                 —Gen. Anthony C. Zinni USMC (Ret.)
