Though, upon arrivingand enlisting in the Israeli Army, Chasnoff soon saw that the serious change of pace he'd been so seeking, was nothing more than a chance for him to mingle with a voracious pack of 18-year-olds. In 'The 188th Crybaby Brigade,' Chasnoffoffer readers a hilariously candid story about his year spent 'learning to drive tanks' (which was spent moreso largely eating snacks, and learning how to fold his uniform), and the remarkable material this has made for him today.

    In the first few years of the post-9/11 era, the established models for fighting 'small wars' proved distressingly ineffective against resilient insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan. As the insurgents fought Western militaries to a stalemate, it was clear that a new approach was necessary. David Kilcullen, one of the world's most influential experts on guerrilla warfare, is a key architect of the United States' revamped military strategy. In this book, Kilcullen takes us on the ground to uncover the face of modern warfare, illuminating both the global challenge and small wars across the world.

    David Kilcullen is one of the world's most influential experts on counterinsurgency and modern warfare, a ground-breaking theorist whose ideas "are revolutionizing military thinking throughout the west" (Washington Post). Indeed, his vision of modern warfare powerfully influenced America's decision to rethink its military strategy in Iraq and implement "the Surge," now recognized as a dramatic success. In The Accidental Guerrilla, Kilcullen provides a remarkably fresh perspective on the War on Terror. Kilcullen takes us "on the ground" to uncover the face of modern warfare, illuminating both the big global war (the "War on Terrorism") and its relation to the associated "small wars" across the globe: Iraq, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Thailand, the Pakistani tribal zones, East Timor and the horn of Africa. Kilcullen sees today's conflicts as a complex interweaving of contrasting trends--local insurgencies seeking autonomy caught up in a broader pan-Islamic campaign--small wars in the midst of a big one. He warns that America's actions in the war on terrorism have tended to conflate these trends, blurring the distinction between local and global struggles and thus enormously complicating our challenges. Indeed, the US had done a poor job of applying different tactics to these very different situations, continually misidentifying insurgents with limited aims and legitimate grievances--whom he calls "accidental guerrillas"--as part of a coordinated worldwide terror network. We must learn how to disentangle these strands, develop strategies that deal with global threats, avoid local conflicts where possible, and win them where necessary. Colored with gripping battlefield experiences that range from the jungles and highlands of Southeast Asia to the mountains of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border to the dusty towns of the Middle East, The Accidental Guerrilla will, quite simply, change the way we think about war. This book is a must read for everyone concerned about the war on terror.

  • Afghanistan: Graveyard of Empires: A New History of the Borderland

    • ISBN-13: 9781605981895
    • Publisher: Pegasus
    • Published: July 2011
    Veteran defense analyst and Afghanistan expert David Isby provides an insightful and meticulously research look at the current situation in Afghanistan, its history, and what he believes must be done so that the US and NATO coalition can succeed. The task of implementing an effective US policy and cementing Afghani rule is hampered by with Isby sees as separate but overlapping conflicts between terrorism, narcotics, and regional rivalries, each requiring different strategies of resolve. Pulling these various threads together will be the challenge for the present [Obama] administration, yet it is a challenge that can be, necessarily, met, but merely adding to the legacy of a country that has historically been acknowledged as “the graveyard of empires.” Sources, Index. 442p.
