I watched a report from Afganistan where a small group of 8-10 American soldiers went into a thick cornfield that they knew had enemy in it. There was high ground on both sides of the field very close, like only a few feet away. Instead of sending his men to the high ground where they could look down on the enemy, the CO sent them straight into the field where they couldn't see them. I want your opinion about this. It seemed much wiser to me, to take the high ground and spy the enemy rather than walking into thick brush where you could only see a few feet in front of you. Is there something in military strategy that I am missing here?
