Improvements in enemy weaponry have made smaller maneuver elements absolutely essential. To wage modern war, commanders must disperse their troops and decentralize control over them. In the Oriental/German or “Maneuver” style of warfare, any amount of firepower can be countered with enough surprise. To practice Maneuver Warfare, U.S. units must learn to function under decentralized control — e.g. each company as a group of semi-autonomous squads.
Posterity Press's tactics/intell. manual supplements are designed to help NCOs and officers master Maneuver Warfare at the squad level. Three of them—The Tiger's Way, Dragon Days, and Strategic Rifleman will also show infantry, special-operations, and SWAT squad members how to more easily survive

"Lt.Col. John Poole, USMC retired, has published much of the best material on light infantry tactics . . . by a living author. His timing could not have been better. . . . The outcome in Iraq remains uncertain, while the U.S. and its NATO allies appear to be facing failure in Afghanistan. The reasons are many, but one . . . is that the U.S. has no light infantry, while our oppenents are often very competent light infantrymen. . . . John Poole knows better than almost anyone else, the techniques of light infantry."
- William S. Lind, U.S. father of 4th-Generation Warfare theory
