Description: On Combat is a ground-breaking examination of what it takes to perform, cope with and survive deadly combat as a soldier in a foreign land or a police officer in the mean streets of urban America. Written by two warriors who have experienced the intensity of combat situations, the book begins with an in-depth look at what happens to the human body under the stresses of deadly battle – the impact on the nervous system, heart rate, breathing, visual and auditory perception, memory – and then examines new research on how warriors can train the mind to become inoculated to stress, fear and even pain so they can stay in the fight, survive and win. A fresh and highly informative look at post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) details how to prevent it, survive it, come out of it stronger and help others who are experiencing it. Read this book and discover the nature and inner strength of the warrior – brave men and women who train their minds and bodies to go to that place from which others flee. 396 pp.
