One of the deadliest firefights in the history of the FBI occurred in 1986 in Miami, Florida. Lasting more than four minutes, the fight claimed the lives of two FBI agents and two extremely violent master criminals and severely injured five other FBI agents. On the 10th anniversary of the shootout, W. French Anderson, M.D., released his seminal study, Forensic Analysis of the April 11, 1986, FBI Firefight. Anderson?s report ? the most well-researched, well-documented account of a gunfight in modern history ? was available only to law enforcement personnel . . . until now. On the 20th anniversary of the firefight that revolutionized the way law enforcement agencies around the nation arm and train their agents, Dr. Anderson makes Forensic Analysis available to the public for the first time.
If you have ever wondered how much punishment the human body can take and continue to function, this scientific report ? written by a medical doctor who had access to every scrap of information associated with this case ? will astound you. This updated edition of Forensic Analysis includes a new preface by the author that explains how and why he researched this gunfight and answers the most commonly asked questions about it in unprecedented detail. The book also contains detailed diagrams and color photos of the scene and autopsy photos of the criminals; a foreword by Sgt. David Rivers of the Metro-Dade Police Department, who supervised the team in charge of the crime scene; and statements from some of the FBI agents involved in the firefight.
Not only is this book a must-read for any law enforcement officer or private citizen concerned with surviving a gunfight, it also demonstrates how, with the correct mind-set, a person can endure incredible physical punishment and prevail in almost any life-threatening situation.
