The Defense of Jisr Al-Doreaa

Picked up a gem on New Year's Eve at the Central Public Library by chance, while waiting for a dinner gathering that evening.

Written in the style of The Defence of Duffer's Drift, The Defense of Jisr Al-Doreaa is a great tactical guide book on counterinsurgency. The fictional story in the form of 6 recurring dreams allow a platoon commander to learn 16 lessons, step by step.
