Subtitle Platoon

Later, Rose would go back and do the class over again with subtitles just to see if he got a shout-out. As of early October, he was still waiting and hoping. But without subtitles, Rose could only watch the instructors and try to copy what they were doing. The introduction of live subtitles, he says, just made me absolutely ecstatic.

Your responsibilities as the reader of this book start with the very basic decision of how to deal with a very experienced platoon sergeant and then quickly require you to decide how to fight the upcoming battle. During your time as 2dLt Davis, you find yourself making decisions about a wide range of issues that military leaders face-everything from troop welfare issues to the security measures required for your defense. The situations are brought to you in the form of 102 individual sections that you traverse based upon fate or the decisions you make. The role fate or luck plays in the combat environment is re-created by a roll of the dice at the end of some sections to determine what happens next. Each section either ends with a decision for you to make or the end of the battle for you through victory, a shattered unit, or possibly your own capture or death. In all instances where your decisions or fate led you astray, a brief lesson in maneuver warfare or battlefield leadership is provided and then you are directed back to the beginning to try again, armed with your newfound knowledge. This is one of the most interesting aspects of this book; the ability to fight the battle over and over again with a number of different endings. Ultimately you will learn the lessons that the author has chosen to concentrate on and conclude your experience having led your unit to victory.

The book has definite Army flavor in weaponry and other areas, but the underlying concepts are definitely applicable to leaders at any level or Service. Undoubtedly many Marines will compare this book with a similar technique that we use widely-our tactical decision games. The biggest difference is that the book restricts your choices to a only few options for each scenario, as it must, in order to provide the interaction and immediate feedback desired. What it lacks in this regard it makes up for by the inclusion of the role that fate or luck plays on the battlefield. It is this factor and the immediate feedback that keep the reader interested and genuinely involved in the progress of 2dLt Davis and his platoon.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fictional tactical scenarios that require them to think and take action. Its lessons are basic but timeless, and should therefore be of interest to any military leader. It should be especially interesting to anyone who read and enjoyed Armor Attacks: The Tank Platoon since the two books are so similar. Once again we can only hope, as Maj Schmitt did, that the subtitle The Rifle Platoon:

The director, a French veteran of the Indochina war (La 317e Section), returned to follow a platoon of American soldiers for six weeks at the height of fighting in Vietnam in 1966. The documentary discusses the background and fate...

Chris Taylor is a young, naive American who gives up college and volunteers for combat in Vietnam. Upon arrival, he quickly discovers that his presence is quite nonessential, and is considered insignificant to the other soldiers, as he has not fought for as long as the rest of them and felt the effects of combat. Chris has two non-commissioned officers, the ill-tempered and indestructible Staff Sergeant Robert Barnes and the more pleasant and cooperative Sergeant Elias Grodin. A line is drawn between the two NCOs and a number of men in the platoon when an illegal killing occurs during a village raid. As the war continues, Chris himself draws towards psychological meltdown. And as he struggles for survival, he soon realizes he is fighting two battles, the conflict with the enemy and the conflict between the men within his platoon.

1954. The dying days of the French war in Indochina. As the battle of Diên Biên Phu rages, the 317th platoon of the French Far East Expeditionary Corps are ordered to destroy their base and evacuate. The French and Laotian soldiers must brave the Cambodian jungle on foot to reach the safety of French-held Tao Tsai, hoping to get there before the town falls.

The men are optimistic as they set out. But what should be a 48-hour trek goes wrong almost from the start. After running into a Viet Minh supply base, the 317th platoon take casualties. Their rookie leader, the idealistic sub-lieutenant Torrens (Jacques Perrin) has spent all of 18 days in Indochina and insists on carrying the wounded. He clashes with his adjutant, Willsdorf (Βruno Cremer), a jaded Wehrmacht veteran of the Russian campaign. A harrowing week-long journey follows, through the mountains and across rivers, as the men vainly hope to be saved by air support. Directed by Oscar-winner Pierre Schoendoerffer, and based on his novel of the same name, THE 317th PLATOON captures the terror and chaos of the last days of the French war in Indochina. This is a classic war film that influenced later American cinema on Vietnam.

For starters, goalie platoons usually don't work in the playoffs. They are great in the regular season because the grind of an 82-game schedule wears on goaltenders, which is why fewer of them play 60-plus games compared to 10 years ago.

Another reason why a playoff goalie platoon is a bad idea is because Bruins starter Linus Ullmark is on track to win the Vezina Trophy. Why on Earth would the Bruins not give the league's best goalie this season the start in Game 1 of the playoffs and a long leash for the entire postseason run? There's no precedent for it, and that's because if you have a Vezina-level goalie who has dominated opponents all season, you ride him as long as you can.

One of the arguments for a goalie platoon is that backup Jeremy Swayman has been awesome the last month or so. It's true, he's been great of late, but his stats aren't leaps and bounds better than Ullmark since Feb. 1. Ullmark has five victories in that span against teams currently in a playoff spot. Swayman had three such wins over that span.

The book's subtitle is a variant of President Dwight Eisenhower's warning against the potentially outsize influence of industry on U.S. defense policy. The military-Internet complex treats the Web as a battlefield, writes Harris, a senior correspondent at The Daily Beast. That battlefield is full of government and corporate secrets, and it has spawned a lucrative market for protecting them.

Cyberwarfare is not a new concept, but it is a fairly new practice. One of the pivotal moments came in 2007, during the surge of U.S. forces in Iraq, according to Harris. He profiles Bob Stasio, then an Army lieutenant whose signals-intelligence platoon is credited with tracking down hundreds of insurgents. He used cell phone signals to determine insurgents' locations and sent reports back to commanders to correlate the data with a wider view of the battlefield.

Recent years have seen countless memoirs of authors who served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. While some have been sensationalistic or of questionable accuracy, others, such as Nathaniel Fick's One Bullet Away,[1] provide invaluable resources for both scholars and the general public. Matt Gallagher's Kaboom, a day-to-day account of a small-unit leader in Iraq, belongs in the latter category. The author, a lanky twenty-something from Reno, Nevada, was commissioned as an armored cavalry officer in 2005. In late 2007, he began a fifteen-month deployment in the greater Baghdad region, first as a platoon commander with the 2-14 Cavalry and later as a targeting officer in the 1-27 Infantry Battalion. After leaving the Army in 2009, he wrote Kaboom based on material first published in his controversial blog of the same name, which his superiors had forced him to shut down midway through his deployment.[2] Gallagher's attention to detail, engaging prose, and critical view of the US war effort make this book a must read for those who would better understand America's recent counterinsurgency (COIN) campaigns.

Gallagher repeatedly turns a critical eye on the Army and its bureaucracy, presenting his own frustrations as typical among junior leaders in COIN environments. He constantly perceives a sharp disconnect between the war he trained for and the one he actually fought. He and his peers had been schooled in "decentralized warfare" in which "small units like sections and platoons and troops functioned as nigh-independent entities" and "struck like a swarm of killer bees." Unfortunately, the Army he served with was more a "lumbering elephant," whose "strength and power had [had] its time and place," but, since World War II, had become increasingly irrelevant. In Gallagher's opinion, the only way to achieve success in the unconventional conflicts of the twenty-first century is by "letting loose the initiative of junior officers and NCOs, who solved their own local problem sets" (175). 041b061a72
