In this Memorandum, the author has reconstructed and evaluated his unique experience as participant and eyewitness in a critical period of the Algerian war. During the two years of his service in that theater, the Algerian rebels, having come within sight of victory, saw their hopes thwarted by a sudden increase in the French military effort, and both sides fought intensively for the allegiance and support of the population. The emphasis on pacification, rather than military operations, in the present study reflects the writer's special concern with that aspect of counterinsurgent warfare. Most important and generally valid five principles of counterinsurgent warfare that he found confirmed in his Algerian experience. The objective is the population. The support of the population is not spontaneous and must be acquired and organized through the efforts of the minority that actively favors the counterinsurgent. This minority will emerge, and will be followed by the majority, only if the counterinsurgent is recognized as the ultimate victor. The counterinsurgent, unlike the insurgent, needs much to achieve little, and he therefore must concentrate his efforts on one area at a time. In time, the issue of war and peace becomes the central one in any insurgency, making the relative merit and popularity of the contending causes a matter of secondary moment
