This little book has recently been published by the US Army.
This is a "pocket" guide for junior soldiers. It is intended that small groups of soldiers should use this as a reference and in conducting small unit (squad/platoon) training.
On the whole I think it is a useful primer on the Arabs and Muslims. It contains a few "typos" and minor errors, but this is to be expected. The guide is properly cautious about the generalizations that must be made to make a book like this useful.
Most importantly, it addresses these populations on the bases of their shared thought and traditions. This is a major step forward for an army that prefers to think of people, all people, as inter-changeable "parts."
Green Berets, some psychological operations and some intelligence people rise above that kind of de-humanizing thought, but they are an exception in an army that all too often would rather deal with machines.
I congratulate Training and Doctrine Command on this project.
