Swift, silent, and deadly: the unmistakable marks of a well trained guerrilla. No tank, rocket-propelled grenade, or infantry battaliion can match the guerrilla team's ability to exact brutality with precision, instill fear in enemy hearts, and viciously deflate morale. From the jungles of Southeast Asia to the mountains of Afghanistan, the U.S. military has employed guerilla tactics to deadly effect. These tactics and techniques, at work around the globe at this very minute, are laid out in the U.S. Army Guerrilla Warfare Handbook. Employing small, heavily-armed, and well-oiled teams, guerrilla warfare has played an invaluable role in the success of nearly every U.S. campaign since the Korean War. This handbook covers such topics as raids and ambushes, demolition, counterintelligence, mining and sniping, psychological warfare, and communications. It also gives readers an inside look at the guerilla strategies and weapons that have come to be so feared by enemies and respected by allies. Not another outside perspective or commentary on unconventional warfare, this is the original.
