Knowing some of the background behind the correct use of shields, or jousting, or crossbows, or siege weapons will help you be a better Good v. Evil player.

In much the same fashion, reading this, or as much of this as you can stand, will make you a better BT05 player:

It's the U.S. Army's latest strategy document on how to counter insurgency operations. Since we're about to become an insurgency operation, knowing counter-insurgency tactics is rather a useful skill.

Why sure, because we're enjoying SUCH success in Iraq and Afghanistan with this manual...

How soon after Caprice do we call in the 200 Talon reinforcements after using this manual?

So, wait, now all we have to do is find where on their information network the CEF posted their counterinsurgency guide, read it, and then just play around it. That is assuming Joanna didn't already bring her copy.

Chapter 1 at least is a good read IMO. The sections on Mao and the North Vietenamese I think bear a good corelation to what the talons are trying to do.
