    That is a good read. Don't bother with first website and the horrible hard to read white print on black back ground. It amazes me people still set a web page up that way.

    Go right to the army document for a much easier read.

    Nice read, thanks.

    The attackers could have taken the time to review the etymology of Grozny; Redoubtable, Awesome, Fearsome....:eek:

    Great read. Although I have to wonder what impact our current technology would have in negating defensive advantages if a modern city was forced into the same situation.

    Brings back some very-fond memories....like presenting the 13 hour blocks of instruction at Camp Darby.

    Although I used to "spit" (to verbally present) M-TETT in place a METT-T to compel (civilian term for force) the analysts to view the terrain from a broader perspective; particularly the enemy's.....

    Good read...you think after Afghanistan they would have realized that the local populous has the advantage...they know the terrain and their will to defend their home is greater than your will to try to take it from them. Add that to the fact that the defender always has the advantage and you have a recipe for disaster!

    Another thing about the indigenous people: they're still there after your forces have gone home, unless you nuke and pave the entire area. And they won't be in a forgiving mood after so many of their own have been buried.
    First battle of Grozny: 1994-1995
    Second battle of Grozny: 1999-2000
    Beslan school siege: September 2004.
    It's not over until the locals decide it is.
