Share Article

Author’s newly published book ‘Asymmetric Tactical Training’ offers an effective instructional model for military training development.

From a man with intense military background and experiences of performing duties of an instructor, curriculum developer, and independent researcher comes a compact and valuable manual that serves as a helpful reference or supplement for military training. Author Richard J. Campbell prepares this comprehensive guide, which is designed specifically for the US Army, for purposes of Asymmetric Tactical Training that can be used by both military and civilians.        

This book explores the many reasons why the US Army should improve military training. The new defense strategy, an increase in asymmetric warfare, an emphasis on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, soldier survivability, and changing soldiers’ responsibilities are some of the cited reasons that are explained in depth in this book. With these facts in mind, the book discusses, in detail, a procedure for the design, development, analysis, and presentation of Asymmetrical Tactical Training.

Also, it presents a training development process that enhances quality control and quality assurance and provides a standardized process that can be used across all three training domains. The process uses three phases of development, a classification and categorization system, and a very practical set of principles and fundamentals. It also examines several teaching and learning models that will greatly improve the teaching-learning environment.

Highlighting helpful insights on military training and featuring an extensive glossary and reference sections, Asymmetric Tactical Training will indeed be an important asset for developing real courses for real people in a number of real training environments.
