The only possible thing that could make Morgan's world even more difficult happened. The Japanese fleet off the coast of California was wiped out. An even that Morgan and friends and family only knew about because of the radio broadcasts from the Radio Free Redoubt. So far removed from them it barely warranted notice. That is until the Chinese retaliated by launching a nuclear counter-strike against Mac Dill Air Force base. This, did warrant their attention and had the potential to profoundly impact their lives.

On Combat looks at what happens to the human body under the stresses of deadly battle and the impact on the nervous system, heart, breathing, visual and auditory perception, memory - then discusses new research findings as to what measure warriors can take to prevent such debilitations so they can stay in the fight, survive, and win. A brief, but insightful look at history shows the evolution of combat, the development of the physical and psychological leverage that enables humans to kill other humans, followed by an objective examination of domestic violence in America.

Amazing book all around, informative, entertaining, impactful, and reassuring for those with the warrior/sheepdog mindset and spirit. Just a very unnecessarily long sets of sections on video games causing violence. Any violence in media whether it's television, movies, video games, or literature consumed by younger audience's unsupervised without a parent or gaurdian teaching right from wrong and fiction from fact can mentally impact a child. It didn't need as much attention as it got in this book while (Stop teaching our kids to kill.) already exists. Other than that it's a phenomenal read for anyone with a warrior's mindset.

Great information for anyone looking to better prepare themselves for the dangers that the world has to offer. However I'd strongly recommend the paperback or kindle edition of this book. The audio book is we'll narrated and still very informative, however it doesn't have the well done, detailed, and at times necessary illustrations for mastering these skills. Be vigilant, be prepared and good luck out there.

The information in the book is excellent. Anyone should be better prepared for a disaster or crisis situation after hearing this information. However, id strongly recommend getting the paperback or kindle edition. This book has many useful, detailed, and in some cases necessary illustrations for mastering these skills.
