The United States has been in a mountain war in Afghanistan for almost a decade. Other nations have different, extensive experience in training and conduction mountain combat. Les Grau and Chuck Bartles gathered this experience in a detailed study aimed at being of use both to military professionals and others with an interest in military operations in mountainous terrain. Chapters include small and large unit actions, reconnaissance, artillery, small arms fire, logistics, communications, medicine and aviation. Much experience is drawn from Soviet efforts in Afghanistan during the 1980s, and modern Russian army training. The text is complemented by numerous maps and diagrams.
