Opis produktu:

Invisible Armies presents an entirely original narrative of warfare, which demonstrates that, far from the exception, loosely organized partisan or guerrillawarfare has been the dominant form of military conflict throughout history. New York Times best-selling author and military historian Max Boot traces guerrillawarfare 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--Invisible Armies

A fascinating view of unconventional warfare throughout history. Max boot draws upon multiple conflicts over various issues to weave together a poignant discussion of the similarities and differences of guerilla armies and tactics. A clear differentiation is made between those that engage in armed struggle and those that employ terrorist tactics without a wider methodical approach. An excellent boot for anyone interested in the international relations aspects of modern unconventional warfare. The background and historical approach adopted by Max Boot enables the reader to more clearly understand the motivations and tactics across some of the most important conflicts of the modern world
