Counterinsurgency has become a buzzword in the last twenty years, but it is as old as society itself. This concise history traces the development of counterinsurgency over the last two hundred years, beginning with the concept of ‘small wars’ and colonial warfare, through the theories of Lawrence of Arabia and early insurgents, to the methods of 20th-century insurgents such as Mao. The authors then examine how western armies have famously tried to counter insurgencies post-WWII – France in Algeria, the US in Vietnam – and astutely compares this to the British approach, concluding with a discussion of the future of COIN.
