Phil D. Harrison analyses the use of infantry weapons across three historic battles in which small arms were pivotal in determining life and death. By assessing Ia Drang, Mirbat and Wanat, this research paper lends a fascinating - and, at times, terrifying - account of moments in which poor development, manufacture, testing or training led to disastrous results. Harrison's assessment of the role of small arms in the 'bigger picture' serves as a call to action to address the readiness of modern forces for Adhesion Warfare and close quarters engagement.
