Beginning with the first insurgencies in the ancient world; when Alexander the Great discovered that fleet nomads were harder to defeat than massive conventional armies; Max Boot, best-selling author and military advisor in Iraq and Afghanistan, guides us from the Jewish rebellion against the Roman Empire up through the horrors of the French-Indochina War and the shadowy, post-9/11 battlefields of today. Relying on a diverse cast of unforgettable characters; not only Mao and Che, but also the legendary Italian nationalist Giuseppe Garibaldi, the archaeologist-turnedmilitary commander T. E. Lawrence, and the; Quiet American; Edward Lansdale, among others; Boot provides a complete global history of guerrilla uprisings through the ages. In doing so, he, not only exposes the myths and mysteries of unconventional combat, but also provides special insights into nontraditional warfare.
