Abstract:

The desert is essentially neutral, affecting both friendly and threat sides equally. You must prepare for it and take certain precautions to protect yourself and your equipment. While the climate and terrain is different to many of us, we should remember that the British maintained a field army and won a campaign in the Western Desert in World War II at the far end of a 12,000-mile sea line of communications with equipment considerably inferior to that of today. Maximize the opportunities we have to learn and train in the desert now so you can deliver the military effectiveness you have been trained to provide.
