Bloodied by Starlight

By: Jonathon Laforce

Description: Jonathon LaForce goes into detail about his first battle with the Taliban when he was in the Marines.

Excerpt: I was growling by then, making sounds more fit for a raging Sith Lord. But I was totally and completely calm. No sweating, no shakes, no hesitation. Simply the mind of a man drilled in his craft. This is what sergeants and corporals have built with throughout the centuries: mortal men, the greatest and most challenging of all materials. From it they craft professional soldiers fit to wear the cloth of a nation, to bear arms in her name across the sands of foreig...

On Training for War

By: Tom Kratman

Description: This essay compares the style of military training in science fiction novels and film with actual military training in real life.

Excerpt: We trained hard, to be sure, miles on thousands of miles of marching with heavy packs (where “heavy” could and often did mean more than body weight), and still more awkward loads, alternatively freezing and roasting, bleeding and blistering. And doing not very much, really. As a character development tool the program had much to recommend it. As a training regimen, it left something to be desired.

The Amazon's Right Breast

By: Tom Kratman

Description: This article addresses the famous and known women from around the world that were apart of and made their mark in the armed forces.

Excerpt: Then, in the Great War, there was Maria Bochkareva’s somewhat tackily named “Women’s Battalion of Death.” There were other Russian all female formations, but that was probably the only one of note. Discipline was fierce, with roughly 85 percent attrition before ever leaving for the front. Fierce discipline? I recall reading one anecdote in which Bochkareva supposedly came upon one of her women making the beast with two backs with a male soldier from a nearby reg...

Indirectly Mistaken Decision Cycles

By: Tom Kratman

Description: This article describes the the psychological tactics used in war. No matter the mistakes made each time, it’s the same thinking pattern and execution that continuously keeps repeating itself through history and modern times.

Excerpt: Similar to Dickson’s Tactics of Mistake? Yes; think about it: Boyd proposes an analogy from the individual fighter pilot to the commander of a ground combat organization. Dickson proposed an analogy from an individual fencer to the commander of a ground combat unit. Boyd proposed that by cycling through the OODA loop faster than the enemy, we would finally get so far ahead that he would find himself in a position of vulnerability. Dickson similarly proposed a se...

Do Tanks Have a Future?

By: J. R. Dunn

Description: J. R. Dunn goes through the history of tanks used in the armed forces. He goes through to describe the declining usage of tanks given todays modern technology.

Excerpt: Tanks were introduced at the front in 1916. The first engagements were unimpressive, distinguished as much by breakdowns as anything else. Churchill, already thinking in strategic terms, advised the Army staff to wait until a thousand or more were available. Instead they were thrown in haphazardly. Their first real success occurred at Cambrai on November 20, 1917, where tanks helped tear a twelve-mile breach in the German lines. Denied adequate support, British ...
