About the Author

Phil Ward is a decorated combat veteran commissioned at age nineteen. A former instructor at the Army Ranger School, he has had a lifelong interest in small unit tactics and special operations. He lives on a mountain overlooking Lake Austin with his beautiful wife, Lindy, whose father was the lieutenant governor to both Ann Richards and George W. Bush.

“There are many books on war but few on fighting.
Men who know anything about fighting
were either killed or (were) inarticulate.”

— Gen. George S. Patton
