    I first read this book back in 1994 at the Engineer Offiver Basi

    I first read this book back in 1994 at the Engineer Offiver Basic
    Course. As a newly minted Second Lieutenant, the fundamentals taught by
    Swinton were fresh and necessary. As an Engineer Officer, where our
    responsibility was mobility, countermobility and survivability, the
    lesons were especially relevant. First published in 1907, this classic
    tale of Subaltern Backsight Forethought and his detachment tasked to
    defend Duffer's Drift during the Boer War, is a lesson in basic small
    unit tactics. From the very first lesson of ensuring that the defenses
    are perpared before resting to the last lesson of expert use of terrain,
    cover and concealment, the easy reading book reinforces the lessons of
    terrain analysis, solid tactics and common sense. On a deeper level,
    the book remains relevant to the business person in a way that is
    similar to a Sun Tzu or Machiavelli. Understand the fundamentals, do not
    trust the enemy, understand the landscape you will fight on, see
    yourself from the enemies point of view, use available resources,
    continue to learn from your mistakes and continuously improve. Still
    relevant for the modern soldier because of the focus on fundamentals,
    the non-soldier has much to gain by reading the book as well.
