  • Throughout history, cities have been at the center of warfare, from sieges to street fighting, from peace keeping to coups de mains Sun Tzu admonished his readers of The Art of War that the lowest realization of warfare was to attack a fortified city a maxim that the Russian army should have heeded before it launched its operation to seize the Chechnyan city of Grozny.Throughout history, cities have been at the center of warfare, from sieges to street fighting, from peace keeping to coups de mains Sun Tzu admonished his readers of The Art of War that the lowest realization of warfare was to attack a fortified city a maxim that the Russian army should have heeded before it launched its operation to seize the Chechnyan city of Grozny Indeed, although strategists have advised against it across the millennia, armies and generals have been forced nonetheless to attack and defend cities, and victory has required that they do it well In Concrete Hell Louis DiMarco has provided a masterful study of the brutal realities of urban warfare, of what it means to seize and hold a city literally block by block Such a study could not be timely We live in an increasingly urbanizing world, a military unprepared for urban operations is unprepared for tomorrow Fighting in cities requires new skills, new weaponry and new tactics But there is no better way to prepare than to look at the successes and failure of some of the most famous operations in modern military history including Stalingrad, Hue City and Fallujah.

    1. An interesting premise, but it fell flat. The historical settings for each of the urban fights is interesting and informative, but the actual details governing the supposed "concrete hells" are sparse. There is little discussion of urban combat tactics, although there is discussion about the overall operational and strategic concerns which is interesting. Although it is well-written from a pacing and grammatical sense, the author is overly repetitive. It feels very much like a Command & Gene [...]


    2. This book could really do with a good editor. Scratch that, a good ghost writer. And lose the wishy-washy government-speak. But still an interesting look at urban warfare from a military man who's spent a good deal of time working in the field.


    3. The book it self doesnt really cover much, just really plain.Not much depth in the tactics the men used, no quotes from the boots on the ground.No suggestions on how each side could do it differently (with exception to the Stalingrad chapter).


    4. Didn't learned much about Urban warfare tactics, but diverse historical situations were interesting to learn. I'd say, this book opens more questions, whose answers should be found in another books.
