How did we do this Christmas? There are a few books I received that I wanted to point out as something special. I was able to review a few chapters of my friend Paul Ciolino’s new book about the history of paramedics prior to publication, and highly recommend it. It is a story largely unwritten until now, and Paul knows how to bring it to life on the written page. I was also flattered to be sent a copy of the much-anticipated book “Composition Warfare” by Eeben Barlow, which is essentially a text book on fighting and winning conflicts in Africa. Barlow strips down the convoluted and contrived language that has watered down how we think and talk about tactics and strategy and tells it like it is. I can’t wait to read it. The third book is “Branding Terror,” which is an encyclopedia of the world’s terrorist organizations, describing the iconography of their flags and insignia, sure to be a much referenced tool in my work at SOFREP.
