GUERILLA WARFARE  

Guerrilla warfare, the basis of the struggle of a people to redeem itself, has diverse characteristics, different facets, even though the essential will for liberation remains the same. It is obvious-and writers on the theme have said it many times-that war responds to a certain series of scientific laws; whoever ignores them will go down to defeat. Guerrilla warfare as a phase of war must be ruled by all of these; but besides, because of its special aspects, a series of corollary laws must ...Read more >

FAULTLINES OF CONFLICT IN CENTRAL ASIA AND THE SOUTH CAUCASUS  

The breakup of the Soviet Union led to the emergence of eight new states in the strategically important crossroads located north of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region, west of China and south of Russia.

In the Soviet lexicon, based on a Russo-centric viewpoint, ...Read more >

A TENTATIVE MANUAL FOR COUNTERING IRREGULAR THREATS : AN UPDATED APPROACH TO COUNTERINSURGENCY  

In the early 20th Century the debacle of Gallipoli convinced many military theorists that amphibious operations were impossibly difficult and inherently doomed to failure. Assessing the nature of the anticipated conflict in the Pacific, the Marine Corps concluded that the United States could not afford the luxury of avoiding that which was incredibly difficult. Rather than avoiding the problem, the Navy-Marine Corps team attacked it. The result was a Tentative Manual for Landing Operations ...Read more >

JOINT OPERATIONS SUPERIORITY IN THE 21ST CENTURY  

The primary objective of this research was to quantitatively assess some joint concepts of operation consistent with Joint Vision (JV) 2010 that might be viable around the 2010–2015 time frame. Although the DSB task force was asked to explore joint operations from a very broad perspective (see Terms of Reference, footnote 1, page vii), including low, mid and high-intensity operations, the scope of this work was limited to only the high-intensity case. It was envisioned that by exploring ...Read more >

CHE GUEVARA : FUNDAMENTALS OF GUERRILLA WARFARE  

The combat strength and expeditionary nature of the Marine Air Ground Task Force make it one of the most responsive elements of U.S. power projection abroad and the best military force suited for rapid insertion into a low-intensity conflict. In fact, many notable military and civilian authorities see this traditional role of the Corps developing into its primary mission as we approach the twenty-first century. As General A. M. Gray, the Corps' Commandant, commented in his October 1987 Marine ...Read more >
