We’ve published a number of articles on the unique characteristics of military operations in dense urban terrain. We also recently launched the Urban Warfare Project, which will continue to develop as a dynamic home for even more content we have in store. In conjunction with the project’s launch, we recently asked readers to weigh in on Twitter and describe the challenges and qualities of urban warfare. After asking a number of experts to read through the hundreds of tweets, we’ve selected some of our favorites.

What do you think? Is there something the tweets don’t capture? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter.

Urban Warfare is the “Rubik’s cube” of battlefield engagements. It can only be won by a predetermined strategy; turn by turn by turn. #urbanwarfareproject
