One More Bridge to Crossl Lowering the Cost of War
Bargain Book Copy
"One More Bridge to Cross: Lowering the Cost of War" is a well-illustrated and concise look at America's current infantry capabilities during short-range combat. Hard to put down, it takes a much more detailed look at what happened at Belleau Wood, Guadalcanal, and several more recent battlefields than their official chronicles are able. In the process, it shows how to defend against advanced assault technique, and how U.S. troops could better match it with supplemental "bottom-up" training. In essence, this book shows American infantry units how to take (and cause) fewer casualties in battle. Where a lasting peace is the ultimate goal, both are important. Minimal force can best be projected by highly trained and semi-independent squad-sized units. One U.S. service branch officially shifted over to "maneuver" from "attrition" warfare in the mid-eighties, but none have been willing/able to decentralize control enough to use it at the squad level. Until they do, lives (and low-intensity wars) will be unnecessarily lost.
