Invisible Armies: An Epic History of Guerrilla Warfare from Ancient Times to the Present Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

presents an entirely original narrative of warfare, which demonstrates that, far from the exception, loosely organized partisan or guerrilla warfare has been the dominant form of military conflict throughout history. best-selling author and military historian Max Boot traces guerrilla warfare and terrorism from antiquity to the present, narrating nearly thirty centuries of unconventional military conflicts. Filled with dramatic analysis of strategy and tactics, as well as many memorable characters--from Italian nationalist Guiseppe Garibaldi to the "Quiet American," Edward Lansdale-- is "as readable as a novel" (Michael Korda, ) and "a timely reminder to politicians and generals of the hard-earned lessons of history" ().

Synopsis:

"Destined to be the classic account of what may be the oldest . . . hardest form of war."--John Nagl,
