Newhall Shooting - A Tactical Analysis: An inside look at the most tragic and influential police gunfight of the modern era.
As the son of a California Highway Patrolman who was a contemporary of the slain officers in the famed 1970 Newhall shooting, Michael E. Wood grew up hearing about the event and its influence on the CHP and law enforcement community. That experience led to his authoring Newhall Shooting: A Tactical Analysis, arguably the most thoroughly researched and documented account of the shooting to date. He is a lifelong shooter and student of armed self-defense and a graduate of civilian self-defense training schools, including the Lethal Force Institute and The HALO Group. Wood is a military officer and pilot with 22 years of experience in operational environments, including combat operations, and is accustomed to analyzing events and deriving "lessons learned" for application in training and programs.

The most account of the Newhall Shooting that I have read. This is an excellent book. Great for Firearms Instructors, Law Enforcement or anyone studying survival tactics and the like. Diagrams that show the play by play of the shooting definitely let you follow the incident as it unfolds, which helps to let you see where less than desirable tactics were used so you can learn from the sacrifice of these brave Officers. Mike Wood definitely put in the legwork to thoroughly research the events of that tragic night in 1970.
