Editorial Reviews

"One sign of an expert is the ability to clearly and concisely analyze and explain his subject. LTC David Galula's Counterinsurgency Warfare: Theory and Practice achieves both goals admirably....Counterinsurgency Warfare should be required reading for every military officer and noncommissioned officer, as well as today's political leaders. Armed with Galula's insightful wisdom, the American military can be armed against the mistakes of Vietnam and Iraq."-Marine Corps Gazette
