Book 4: DOMINATING THE URBAN TERRAIN

The handbook discusses how the Joint Task Force (JTF) Marawi integrated all the capabilities of the various maneuver arms (Infantry, Armor and the Special Operations Forces); maneuver support (Combat Engineers, Intelligence, Civil-Military Operations, Signal and Field Artillery); and the Sustainment (Health, Personnel Services and Logistics) into one cohesive functioning body, which dealt a lethal blow on the enemy. It illustrates the enemy situations, the gaps and challenges encountered by the combined arms as they undertook their tasks and reveals the innovations and best practices used by the forces during the Marawi campaign.
