    DescriptionBeginning 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, a best-selling author and US military advisor in Iraq and Afghanistan, masterfully 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 Boot explodes everything we thought we knew about unconventional combat. The result is both an enthralling read and the most important work available on non-traditional warfare.

    Review quote
    "...a scholarly history of insurgency." The Bookseller "Mr Boot offers a timely reminder to politicians and generals of the hard-earned lessons of history." The Economist "Mr Boot's impressive work of military history is destined to be the classic account of what may be the oldest as well as the hardest form of war." The Wall Street Journal "...a cool and balanced account ranging from prehistory through ancient China to the Ku Klux Klan...to Hezbollah, Hamas and Chechnya." New Statesman "...encyclopedic history of guerrilla warfare..." Financial Times "Boot has produced an important book that is sure to stand the test of time on this broad subject." The Jerusalem Post
