Inhaltsangabe: This book is not about construction, although you will learn about building codes and practices. It is not about tactics, although the information gained by knowing a floor plan will undoubtedly affect them. Instead, this book is designed to provide a quick and simple method of confidently determining floor plans by using outside architectural features. It assumes no knowledge of construction or tactics and is designed to be useful whether it is read cover to cover or occasionally referred to as a reference. It provides time-tested, tried and true principles that any tactician can use to determine avenues of approach, observation and fields of fire, obstacles, and cover or concealment, not to mention where a suspect might be most vulnerable. Using this essential tool for quick and clear comprehension of tactical diagramming, even a novice tactical planner will learn to use windows, doors, vents and other clues to confidently determine interior features. After reading this book, it will be clear that the proverbial "glass house" is in the mind’s eye!
In my wildest imaginations I could never have predicted me writing anything, but especially any scholarly work on tactics. I was born and raised on a farm in rural Michigan and spent my youth living a life right out of Garrison Keillor's books. I joined the U.S. Marine Corps right out of high school and experienced my first bus ride, first taxi ride, first plane ride, stayed in my first hotel and saw my first movie in boot camp. Within six-months I was in Vietnam and being trained by a Gunnery Sgt. from the Korean War. Our First Sgt. was a World War II veteran. Tactics took on a whole new meaning and my lessons were reinforced daily. Upon returning to CONUS I quickly married the girl of my dreams (my wife, Linda, of the last 40 years), went to college and joined the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department. I had stayed in the USMCR to help pay for college and was eventually promoted to officer and was sent to some of the best military schools throughout the United States. (not to mention the Marine Corps' tour of third-world countries in crisis)
My career with the LASD continued until I found myself as a Team Leader of one of the department's six, full-time SWAT teams. Tactics took on a whole new meaning and I began studying in earnest. As I gained more knowledge my interest only quickened and I began teaching and travelling as both an instructor for the LASD and USMC. As a result, I was personally present for the responses to such things as the coup d'état in Thailand (1992), the Oklahoma City Bombing (1995), the attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center (2001) and a host of others. For whatever reason, I just seemed to "get it" when it came to disasters and tactical operations and I continued up the career path and eventually was put in charge of the Special Operations Bureau.
Somewhere along this path I decided to write a primer on tactical science focused on domestic safety services-- Sound Doctrine. It was well-received and so I wrote another one on how to determine floor plans from architectural features. This was another subject that surprised me in that I am also a licensed general contractor and would never have thought my knowledge of building practices would have any value in law enforcement. An Illustrated Guide to Tactical Diagramming was published in 2006.
I am retired now and, in between cross-country bicycle rides and playing with the grandkids, am working on a full-length text on tactical science focused specifically on domestic law enforcement applications. I've got three smarter people, all combat veterans, looking over my shoulder to make sure it makes sense when I'm done. The working title is Field Command and I'm hoping it will be out by the fall of 2011.
