• Unique perspective on guerilla warfare by the Special Forces
Guerrilla warfare is the unconventional warfare and combat in which a small group of combatants use mobile tactics (ambushes, raids, etc.) to combat a larger and less mobile formal army. The guerrilla army uses ambush (stealth and surprise) and mobility (draw enemy forces to terrain unsuited to them) in attacking vulnerable targets in enemy territory. The term means "little war" in Spanish and was created during the Peninsular War.
This handy manual is a primer in the many facets of a successful guerrilla campaign as taught by the pros in Special Forces. Covering everything from the first acts of sporadic rebellion to the final overthrow of a tyrannical government and establishment of a just, democratic society, it is a fascinating tutorial in modern armed resistance.
