Robert "Bob" Taubert “is thought of by FBI veterans as the finest firearms and tactics instructor to serve in the FBI. He has a Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Physical Education and served 12 years as a reconnaissance infantry Marine pulling two combat tours in Vietnam, rising to the rank of Major and serving as company commander.   Robert Taubert joined the FBI serving his country as a Special Agent for over twenty-four years. While in the FBI he was heavily involved in Special Operations and was one of the founders and trainers of the FBI’s Elite Hostage Rescue Team (HRT. Bob served as the FBI SOG liaison for the USMC and US Navy special operations entities. Bob is responsible for the birth of the widely known SEAL Team 6 and assisted what was to become today’s US Navy's Development Group, in gaining official recognition as a national counter terrorism asset by the military.

Serving as the senior instructor at the FBI Academy in the FBI’s SOARS, the elite Special Operations units he was chosen by the DEA to train and equip DEA agents in Close Quarters Battle, SWAT tactics and combat survival skills.

He is an accomplished author and is a staff writer for many LE Magazines, publications, and journals.”  Robert Taubert is the co-author of Soldiering on: The Stories of Two Former Kiwi SAS Men in Their Continuing World-Wide Careers of Adventure and the author of RATTENKRIEG! The Art and Science of Close Quarters Battle Pistol.

According to the book description of RATTENKRIEG! The Art and Science of Close Quarters Battle Pistol “Rattenkrieg was the term used by German soldiers during the battle for Stalingrad to describe the type of vicious, close quarters battle they experienced there while fighting a determined force of Russian soldiers and partisans street by bloody street. That term has been adopted for the title of this book because the true art and science of close quarters battle pistol skills can only be found when the techniques practiced and employed are based not on unrealistic range training protocols, but on the vivid realities experienced when engaged in a life or death fight for survival and total victory. Prospective students are advised that RATTENKRIEG! is not a basic pistol course and that very little time is spent reviewing those skills. Students must be able to hit the ground running and physical fitness is a definite asset when challenged by some of the more dynamic aspects of this training. While primarily focused on the handgun, many of the drills and techniques shown in this book are adaptable to the long gun as well.

Bob's personal training philosophy, developed during his many years while involved in SWAT and FBI Special Operations is distilled into this unique book. It provides a compendium of information and advice regarding skills development, weapons, ammunition, equipment, close quarters battle tactics, shield use, and much more. It also contains a chapter detailing 25 advanced training drills. This chapter includes information on set-up, execution and diagrams for each unique long and short gun drill used to hone and maintain the critical skills and techniques employed during SWAT operations and raids.”
