Description

On Combat looks at what happens to the human body under the stresses of deadly battle and the impact on the nervous system, heart, breathing, visual and auditory perception, memory - then discusses new research findings as to what measure warriors can take to prevent such debilitations, so they can stay in the fight, survive, and win. A brief but insightful look at history shows the evolution of combat, the development of the physical and psychological leverage that enables humans to kill other humans, followed by an objective examination of domestic violence in America. The authors reveal the nature of the warrior, brave men and women who train their minds and bodies to go to that place from which others flee.

After examining the incredible impact of a few true warriors in battle, On Combat presents new and exciting research as to how to train the mind to become inoculated to stress, fear, and even pain. Expanding on Lt. Col. Grossman's popular "bulletproof mind" presentation, the audiobook explores what really happens to the warrior after the battle, and shows how emotions, such as relief and self-blame, are natural and healthy ways to feel about having survived combat. A fresh and highly informative look at post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) details how to prevent it, how to survive it should it happen, how to come out of it stronger, and how to help others who are experiencing it.

On Combat is easy to understand and powerful in scope. It is a true classic that will be listened to by new and veteran warriors for years to come.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Just what I needed.

I'm a police officer in the United States, and this book was recommended to me by my SGT after I had just gotten out of a shooting while on duty.

I listened to this while I waited on administrative leave as my department determined my fate. I've never before had someone point a gun in my face with the intent to kill me, nor have I had to discharge my duty weapon at another living person. I was and am still dealing with the complex emotions of that experience.

I just want to say thank you so much for this book, as the knowledge contained in it helped me to process my experience. I know I am better off because of your words.

Sincerely, a grateful patrol officer.

Best book on combat of all time!

As a veteran this book helped me understand my experience and know how to help myself heal and heal others. My calling to be a warrior was also affirmed and strengthened.

A Warrior Family read...

A must read for any Warrior, Warrior Family, or Warrior Spouse.

Just read this with my teenage son who is about to enlist to the United States Marine Corps.

What insight regarding every component to battle. The prior, during and following affects to the warrior, and everyone that loves him! The emotional, physiological, and even the spiritual components of combat. The reiteration of the 'Sheepdog' ideology alone makes the book worth every penny!

About to read again, but this time along with my wife... a Marine Wife, and soon to be (God willing), a Marine Mom.

An insightful and compelling look at a difficult topic

This is an exceptional book. Col. Grossman's insights on the bulletproof mind and the effects of combat are exceptional - this is not just a look at combat from a soldier's perspective but looks at soldiers, law enforcement, and society in general. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

A must read for warriors.<br />

For all soldiers, law enforcement and civilian sheep dogs. Mindset, how to survive the fight before it comes .
Nothing beats having the book narrated by it's author you can feel the passion for the subject matter in his voice.

DAT ENDING

If you could sum up On Combat in three words, what would they be?

Insightful, helpful, applicable.

What does Dave Grossman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Dave Grossman brings THAT ENDING.
I won't spoil it, but in the last few seconds of the book the tone of the book goes from 55 mph to Mach freakin' 12 as the patriotism literally EXPLODES into your ears, music even starts playing! I didn't know whether to laugh or gag it was so comical.

Honestly, GREAT BOOK, but there's something to be said about that ending.
If you recommend this book to a friend you will DEFINITELY know when he or she has finished it when they jump up and yell "AMERICAAAAAAA!!!"

The seriousness and somber tone of the rest the book is almost overshadowed by the ending of this book, it just doesn't fit to me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Every part of this book is important and I found myself rewinding a lot.

Any additional comments?

Be prepared for that ending.

Amazing!

If you could sum up On Combat in three words, what would they be?

This book blew me away! What an incredible look into the world of the warrior. I learned so much about high stress/combat situations, and how to deal with them. I highly recommend this to anyone who has military or LE in the family, or even to someone who is interested in this field, amazing insight!

if you carry a gun - you must listen to this

A bit of a scholarly work but well worth it.

This is a must listen if you have a carry permit or have firearms in the home for defense.

Slow and fluffy

There's a lot of useful information here, but it is slow in coming. At times it seems every paragraph is prefaced by a quote; most of these add little and they get very distracting.

very interesting

interesting subject, very well told. I do not agree about the subject of videogame violence. But he makes some points worth considering.

Selbstverteidigung, Nahkampf und Behördentraining

Jeder, der im Bereich Selbstschutz arbeitet, ob im Zivilen, aber besonders im Bereich der behördlichen Ausbildung sollte dieses (Audio-)Buch (gehört/) gelesen haben.

Es ist ein umfangreiches Weck, dass von der Vorbereitung bis zur Nachsorge nach lebensbedrohlichen Situationen keinen Aspekt auslässt. Inklusive der Einflussfaktoren innerhalb der Gesellschaft, die Gewaltbereitschaft steigern bzw. reduzieren können.

Es werden viele wissenschaftliche Studien genannt und vorgestellt und mit zahlreichen praktischen Beispielen und Berichten von Behördlern gemischt! Sehr gut !!! Es gibt das Buch schon in mehreren Sprachen und die Frage ist, warum noch nicht auf deutsch? Bitte nachholen ;-) (an die Verlage gerichtet, da es in den anderen Sprachen teilweise ein Bestseller ist!).

Thanks for this great work!
