The other side of the mountain : Mujahideen tactics in the Soviet-Afghan War by Ali Ahmad Jalali( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979, few experts believed that the fledgling Mujahideen resistance movement had a chance of withstanding the Soviet Army. in 1989, realizing they were trapped in an unwinnable war where they were suffering "death from a thousand cuts" by an intractable enemy who had no hope of winning, but fought on because it was the right thing to do, the Soviet Union withdrew from Afghanistan. Few studies of guerrilla warfare from the guerrilla's perspective exist. To capture this perspective and the tactical experience of the Mujahideen, the United States Marine Corps commissioned this study and sent two retired combat veterans to interview Mujahideen. From those interviews has come this work, which tells the guerillas' story as interpreted by military professionals. This is a book about death and survival, adaptation and perseverance. It provides an understanding of guerrilla field craft, tactics, techniques and procedures
Afghan guerrilla warfare : in the words of the Mujahideen fighters by Ali Ahmad Jalali( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979, few experts believed the fledgling Mujahideen resistance movement had a chance of withstanding the modern, mechanized onslaught of the Soviet Army. But somehow, the Mujahideen prevailed against a larger and decisively better equipped foe. No one predicted the Soviet Union would withdraw in defeat in 1989. How did the Mujahideen do it? This work explores this question. With more than 100 first-hand reports from Mujahideen combat veterans and maps illustrating locations and disposition of forces, this book provides a tactical look at a decentralized army of foot-mobile guerrillas as they wage war against a superior force
