Über diesen Titel:
Heavily illustrated and footnoted, this book contains a spellbinding account of how China has come to economically and then politically dominate much of the Dark Continent. But, not all of this PRC influence has been peaceful. Within the eastern border of the Chinese-supported Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the genocide against Tutsis from 1994 Rwanda is still going on. Between 1998 and 2008, some 5.4 million DRC citizens lost their lives to "inter-factional fighting." Since 2009 within the DRC's northeastern quadrant alone, an additional 45,000 human beings have expired every month from unnatural causes. U.S. administrations have done far too little to stop this senseless slaughter, and the downward spiral in Africa as a whole.
Über den Autor: Through an inverted military career, H. John Poole has discovered a few things that more promotable people miss. After spending two of his first four years as a combat commander, he did his last seven as an enlisted tactics instructor. That allowed him to see why U.S. troops have always had so much trouble with counterinsurgency, and short-range combat in general. Their tactical techniques are quite simply outmoded -- so unlikely to surprise an alert adversary as to be "premachinegun" in format. This little oversight on the part of their commanders and how to correct it forms much of the framework for Poole's work. Since retirement from the U.S. Marine Corps in 1993, he has has traveled extensively in both Communist and Islamist worlds and written 14 other tactics/intelligence supplements. He has also conducted multiday training sessions on how to develop advanced infantry technique for 41 U.S. battalions, 9 schools, and 7 special operations units. As most U.S. intelligence personnel know too little about the Eastern thought process and evolution of squad tactics, these supplements provide currently deployed GIs with a rare glimpse into their enemy's intentions. Since 2000, Poole has gone to Russia, Mainland China (twice), North Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India (three times), Pakistan (twice), Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, Sudan, Tanzania, and Venezuela. Over the course of his lifetime, he has further traveled throughout most of the world. He has visited six African countries: Morocco, Egypt, Sudan, Tanzania, and -- just recently -- Zambia and South Africa. Between early tours in the Marine Corps (from 1969 to 1971), Poole worked as a criminal investigator for the Illinois Bureau of Investigation (IBI). After attending the State Police Academy for several months in Springfield, he worked out of the IBI's Chicago office on general criminal and drug cases.
