"Field Manual (FM) 3-24, Counterinsurgency and now FM 3-0, Operations sparked revolution in our thinking as an Army. While those manuals provide broad guidance, however to achieve the overall counterinsurgency objectives platoons, companies, and battalions require specific guidance at the level where they conduct lethal operations and where the most meaningful engagements happen. Main learning points in this handbook are: every soldier's contact with the population is an opportunity; lethal and nonlethal actions have implications far beyond the immediate situation- and soldiers must be thinking long term; our enemies have the time to watch and observe our activities; soldiers must diligently avoid predictable behavior and setting patterns; the complexities of today's threat require soldiers to maintain training, mental acuity, and resourcefulness to accomplish every task. This handbook, collected in theater and written to support the 5/2 ID (Stryker) predeployment training, reflects the best practices of units currently conducting their missions"--P. [i].
