Summary
American Guerrilla is a compelling narrative history of how Americans have fought unconventional warfare from the French and Indian Wars and the Revolution through the anti-insurgent campaigns of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The author provides the reader with a concise and engaging story of how the American approach to guerrilla warfare has been molded and executed, and how these small scale engagements have been integral to the success of our nation's larger battles
