This book is a must read for all law enforcement tacticians and strategists. It also is essential to anyone who wants to understand why law enforcement operations succeed and fail. Heal takes his previous works Sound Doctrine and Tactical Diagramming to a deeper level. This is a law enforcement textbook that shows that what peace officers do is logical, reasoned and based on principles that owe their origins to the military sciences and centuries of theory and application. The principles Heal discusses are present in law enforcement operations whether a peace officer is aware of their existence or not. It is the prudent officer and tactical commander who learns the principles explained by Heal and puts them into practice. Too often peace officers concentrate on what to do and how to do it without a deeper understanding of the whys behind the tactical principles they employ. This book explains the why. No one can consider themselves a fully educated law enforcement officer without a thorough reading of Heal. As the writer of the book's forward "On Killing" and "On Combat" author Lt. Col. Dave Grossman rightly stated, Heal is law enforcement's Clausewitz or Sun Tzu.
