This is an extraordinary tale of how villagers actually were inspired to fight alongside other defenders who started as complete strangers.
In this tale, one skilled individual did it all. Those skills can easily be taught and practice quickly pays off. No different that salesmanship training but actually way more important.
Truth is most of us come to the game not only unprepared for this but even trained off it from concentration on alternate objectives in our school years. It can be as simple as stepping a little closer and focusing on listening.
It was enough to persuade villagers to also get on those rooftops and brave incoming fire. The high level of returned fire would force the Taliban to back off the village and that sudden self sufficiency allows those villagers to take back their village..
