Abstract:

In order to provide insights into the role of city fighting and the differences and similarities between city fighting and rural combat, three related subjects are discussed in this appendix. First, an attempt is made to list some of the major reasons why cities have been fought over in the past and the difficulties encountered. Secondly, the historically combat-relevant physical features of cities and their effects are discussed. Descriptions are given of these features before and after significant combat has taken place in cities. Finally, the last subject considered is the effect of city-unique features on tactics and organization as seen from past combat experience.
