Posterity Press supports all elected and security
establishment leaders by keeping them informed. On this country’s most divisive
issue, it offers the following advice:
What others have said about our books -
“John Poole has done a wonderful and innovative job in weaving tactical lessons into a very readable and exciting set of books. I would highly recommend them to all NCOs and officers.” - Gen. Anthony C. Zinni USMC (Ret.)
The Last Hundred Yards is "...the best book written on ground tactics in English in the last fifty years." - Bruce I. Gudmundsson (author of Stormtroop Tactics and co-author of On Infantry)
One More Bridge to Cross - “Poole puts together the ingredients of how to fight and win in the 21st Century.” - Infantry Magazine, Fall 2003
Phantom Soldier - “This affordable book needs to be read by all combat arms soldiers, all special operators, and all generals.” - Army Magazine, December 2001
The Tiger's Way - “All of it [the book] will make you better prepared for the future fight. I recommend it to all infantrymen and infantry leaders.” - Maj.Gen. Ray L. Smith USMC (Ret.).
Tactics of the Crescent Moon - “John Poole’s well-titled Tactics of the Crescent Moon offers an absorbing nuts-and-bolts analytic study of . . . Islamic guerrilla tactics. He begins with a fresh look at . . . Gallipoli. . . . He then goes forward in time . . . to . . . the Iran-Iraqi War, Lebanon, Israel - Palestine, Chechnya, Afghanistan, al-Qaeda, and Iraq. . . . It is a book that deserves reading at all levels from private to general.”— B.Gen. Edwin H. Simmons USMC (Ret.), former Head of History & Museums Div.
Militant Tricks - “This book is a must read for anyone who has a stake in the new war.” - Leatherneck Magazine
Terrorist Trail - “[B]ook is a chilling description of the ... threat. It’s true value ... [is] in outlining tactics and strategies to defeat today’s terrorism threat.” - Maj.Gen. John H. Admire USMC (Ret.), former commander of 1st Marine Division
Dragon Days - “John Poole’s writing on small-unit techniques is far advanced over what the U.S. armed forces offer in their manuals and teach in their schools.” —William S. Lind, father of 4th Generation Warfare
Tequila Junction - “Our current threat is multi-dimensional and multi-directional. . . . John Poole, cautions us to broaden our concerns beyond our geographically dispersed and distant threats to those much closer to home. The thought-provoking premise of “Tequila Junction” warns us of a global insurgency emerging to operate from within. It’s closer than we prefer to think.”— Maj.Gen.John H.Admire USMC(Ret.), former commander of 1st Marine Division
Homeland Siege - “Homeland Siege offers a wealth of good material on small unit tactics and techniques. This is the hallmark of John Poole’s work, which has rightly won him a devoted following among small unit leaders in the U.S. Army and Marine Corps.”— William S. Lind, father of 4th-Generation Warfare theory
Expeditionary Eagles - “America . . . suffered a serious setback in Vietnam. . . . [It] is headed down that same road due to an arrogant belief in technology. John Poole’s latest book is a warning sign along that road. Heed it and go on to victory [in Afghanistan], disregard it and return to Saigon in 1975.” — Kim Bernard Holien, Professional Military Historian
Global Warrior - “[The author] has a more comprehensive understanding of the threats and adversaries that the ‘free world’ faces than many others do.” — The Counter Terrorist, October/November 2011
Gung Ho! - "Anyone interested
in the history of WWII, the Marine Raiders, Unconventional Warfare or
light-infantry tactics will find 'Gung Ho!' fascinating. Company grade officers
and NCOs in Western infantry and special-operations units will find Gung Ho! to
be a valuable manual for [the] agile, initiative-based tactics [to which] they
have not been properly introduced.”— Chris Graham, editor of The Counter
Terrorist, founding member of USMC Anti-Terrorism Battalion
