Abstract:

In the global war on terror, among the greatest threats to the United States military are insurgent uprisings. Enter the U.S. Army Counterinsurgency Warrior Handbook, the counterinsurgency playbook used by the greatest army in the world. This manual establishes fundamental principles for tactical counterinsurgency operations at the company, battalion, and brigade levels. It is based on lessons learned from historic counterinsurgencies and current operations. The realities of today's military operations must consider population explosion, urbanization, globalization, technology, the spread of religious fundamentalism, resource demand, climate change and natural disasters, and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and all these are covered in this indispensable resource. Both a boots-on-the-ground field guide to defeating an insurgency in a nation where the U.S. military has oversight, and a high-level leadership guide for commanders organizing counterinsurgency efforts, this book--which includes battle diagrams and illustrations--is not only a must-read for military buffs, but is also a valuable resource for business and gaming strategists.-- Back cover.
