Head on over to Abu Muqawama for boots-on-the-ground LL. Kip has just posted Notes from Anbar (http://abumuqawama.blogspot.com/2008/07/notes-from-anbar.html) - A USMC LT on his way out of Anbar speaks to some of the amazing changes that have taken place there since the Awakening and offers some advice (including reading this blog) for those on their way. Good common sense stuff...

Of note - The Counterinsurgency Cliff Notes (http://smallwarsjournal.com/blog/2008/04/the-counterinsurgency-cliff-no/): Techniques for the Conventional Rifle Platoon, in Laymanís Terms by Captain Craig Coppock, Small Wars Journal, is cited as very worthwhile resource.
