The twentieth century produced scores of such conflicts, whether as sideshows of the world wars or as the main events in wars of revolution or liberation. "Guerrilla Warfare" examines twenty-one of these conflicts, shedding light on the remarkable capabilities of unconventional fighters to outlast and defeat their enemies. "Guerrilla Warfare" covers a century of unconventional fighters at war including: succinct accounts of 21 guerrilla conflicts in the twentieth century; the exploits of men like Lawrence of Arabia, Orde Wingate, Mao Zedong, and Che Guevera; the American hunt for Pancho Villa; Mao versus Chiang in the Chinese Civil War; the showdown at Dien Bien Phu in 1954; France's long war in Algeria; the Siege of Khe Sanh in the Vietnam War; the Afgan-Soviet War from 1979 to 1989; and, more.
