This book is about winning in combat. Winning requires a thorough understanding and knowledge of tactics. But what is tactics?

Tactics is the art and science of winning engagements and battles. It includes the use of firepower and maneuver, the integration of multiple weapons, and the immediate exploitation of success to defeat the enemy.

This book describes the doctrine and techniques that have made the U.S. Marine Corps one of the most respected and feared military forces in the world - by overwhelming the enemy with the art and science of tactics.

Warriors, warfighters, planners and thinkers will all benefit from Tactics' wisdom, distilled from the bloody lessons of history, modern military science, and the storied past of the Corps.

"There is only one principle of war and that's this. Hit the other fellow, as quick as you can, and as hard as you can, where it hurts him the most, when he ain't looking." - Sir William Slim
