to those created by a minefield unless it might be a series of spoil marks
from laying posts of a fence. In grassy fields or in open virgin ground,
freshly laid mines are readily identified even on small-scale imagery.
Comparative coverage of an area is an aid in spotting possible minefields
since such comparisons can reveal small changes and attempts at camouflage
that may otherwise go undetected.
(8) Minefields are employed as follows:
Used to provide local close-in protective (Figure 2-18)
installations (Figure 2-19).
Used to stop, delay, or disrupt an enemy attack,
reduce enemy mobility, block penetrations, and strengthen manned positions
