Note to 75

December 27, 2009

This is my attempt to summarize counterinsurgency doctrine as found in the U.S. Army/Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual and elsewhere. T.X. Hammes is a retired Marine colonel and author of The Sling and the Stone: On War in the 21st Century (Zenith Press, 2004), The “outgovern” line is from his Washington Post article “The Way to Win a Guerilla War” from November 26, 2006, page B2. Another good book on counterinsurgency strategy is The Accidental Guerilla: Fighting Small Wars in the Midst of a Big One by David Kilcullen (Oxford University Press, 2009).
