KILLING GROSSMAN: UNDERSTANDING ON COMBAT AND ON KILLING

 

Jul 14, 2020 | Podcast | 0 comments

Mike and Jim discuss one of the most controversial figures in tactical thought: LTC Dave Grossman

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is a retired military psychology teacher who wrote the books On Combat and On Killing. They were some of the first attempts to help people understand the psychological experience of killing from the perspective the armed forces and survival-oriented crowds, but because they were such early works some of his theories don’t hold up long-term. We discuss these issues and how the tactical telephone game and caricature views of violence through things like Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs can be problematic.
