Dave Grossman
Dave Grossman was born in Frankfurt, West Germany on August 23, 1956. He is an American writer and trainer that conducts seminars on the psychology of lethal force. He’s a retired lieutenant colonel in the United States Army.

Following his retirement from the Army, he founded the Killology Research Group in order to give these seminars about the psychological and physiological effects of having to use lethal force for soldiers and law enforcement officers.

Dave also speaks at civilian events on ways to reduce violence in society and deal with the aftermath of violent events like school shootings. Dave, as a civilian, has been an expert witness in numerous federal and state court cases and was a part of the prosecution team of United States vs. Timothy McVeigh.

In 2022, Killology Research Group got renamed and was rebranded as Grossman On Truth.

“On Combat: The Psychology and Physiology of Deadly Conflict in War and in Peace” is a non-fiction book that was released in 2013. This book looks at what happens to the human body under the stresses of deadly battle and the impact on the breathing, heart, nervous system, visual and auditory perception, memory. It then discusses new research findings as to what measure warriors can take to prevent such debilitations, in order for them to stay in the fight, survive, and win.

It’s a brief yet insightful look at history and shows the evolution of combat, the development of the psychological and physical leverage which enables humans to kill other humans, followed by this objective examination of domestic violence in America. The writers reveal the nature of the warrior, brave women and men that train their bodies and minds to go to this place from which others will flee.

After examining the incredible impact of just a few real warriors in battle, this book presents exciting and new research as to how to exactly train the mind to become inoculated to fear, stress, and even pain. Expanding on Lt. Col. Grossman’s popular “bulletproof mind” presentation, this audiobook explores what actually happens to the warrior once the battle’s over, and shows just how emotions, like self-blame and relief, are natural and healthy ways of feeling about having survived combat.

It’s a highly informative and fresh look at post-traumatic stress syndrome and details how to prevent it, how to survive it should it happen, how to come out of it stronger, and how to help others out that are experiencing it.

This book is easy to understand is powerful in scope. It’s a real classic which will be listened to by new and veteran warriors for years to come.

“On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society” is a non-fiction book that was released in 2014. A controversial psychological examination of how soldiers’ willingness to murder has been exploited and encouraged to the detriment of contemporary civilian society.

US Army Ranger and psychologist Dave Grossman writes that the vast majority of soldiers are loath to actually pull the trigger in battle. Unfortunately, modern armies, using operant and Pavlovian conditioning, have developed sophisticated ways of overcoming this instinctive aversion.

The mental costs for members of the military, as witnessed by the increase in post-traumatic stress, is rather devastating. The sociological costs for the rest of us is much worse: Contemporary civilian society, especially the media, replicates the army’s conditioning techniques and, Grossman argues, is also responsible for the rising murder rate and violence, particularly among the young.

Drawing from personal accounts, academic studies, and interviews, this is an important look at the techniques that the military uses to overcome the powerful reluctance to kill, of how killing will affect the soldier, and of the societal implications of escalating violence.

The book is based on S.L.A. Marshall’s theory that the majority of soldiers in war do not ever fire their weapons due to their innate resistance to killing. Marshall studied during World War II, which proposed that (contrary to popular perception) the majority of soldiers during war don’t ever fire their weapons because of this innate resistance to killing. Based on such studies, the military instituted training measures to break down such a resistance, raising soldiers’ firing rates to more than 90 percent during the Vietnam War.

“On Spiritual Combat: 30 Missions for Victorious Warfare—A Spiritual Warfare Guide for Military Members, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders, and all Sheepdogs” is a non-fiction book that was released in 2020. Civilization is battling to survive tragic times.

This book is a spiritual warfare guide for military members, first responders, law enforcement officers, and all sheepdogs. This spiritual warfare book prepares minds and hearts for battle, teaching them to identify, fight, and understand evil forces. Each day includes:
• encouraging Scripture
• powerful readings
• meaningful hymns
• questions for reflection
• recommended reading from “On Combat”, the seminal resource on physical combat by Dave Grossman.

With God, we’ll rise up as virtuous Christian warriors that defend and protect the helpless, innocent, and oppressed.

With topics like righteousness, self defense, and sacrifice, readers are going to learn how to live as virtuous men both physically and spiritually according to biblical truths. It makes a great gift for law enforcement officers, service members, first responders, and all sheepdogs.

“Warrior Mindset: Mental Toughness Skills to Meet Every Challenge” is a non-fiction book that was released in 2022. This practical guide teaches the reader to meet dangerous or stressful situations with a combat ready mentality.

In high-stress situations (particularly ones where lives are on the line) mental toughness is essential. However while many agree on the importance of this psychological skill set, few ever actually provide the practical training in how to go about achieving it. This book explains the concrete steps and techniques to develop a survival mindset and hardened focus.

“Warrior Mindset” offers up an in-depth analysis of this subject. Describing the importance of mental toughness and presenting a method for readying the mind for combat, the text is able to help foster skills which will optimize success, performance, and survival out in the field.
