    Not something i would read but i was talking to an instructor at a class and he recommended this book.

    It took a little time to finish and i'm not sure i totally buy what the author is selling but it was an interesting look and killing and the human mind.

    When i was a child, while the author was still in viet nam, my father who was a former naval officer and military academy graduate explained to me the substance of the exposition of this book, before the book was written.

    He told me that most soldiers never fired their arms and nearly all who did never aimed at the enemy.

    Then he explained that great battles were never fought in a headlong clash “a la hollywood” and, as the author states, few casualties resulted in the advance.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    He even went as far as to point out authentic recordings of native (some of african tribes and some of pacific islanders) battle scenes depicted in some early 20th century films.

    Understanding the dynamics of the killing process may help lower the frequency of apparently senseless deaths of young minority people by the otherwise honorably serving law enforcement officers.

    Fascinating look at how our society is training its young for violence.
