Afghanistan and the Troubled Future of Unconventional Warfare

From Baird Maritime:

Why, readers may wonder, are we reviewing a book on dry, dusty Afghanistan in this marine web portal?

The simple fact is that much unconventional warfare elsewhere in the world involves boats and ships. This book simply uses the war in Afghanistan as a case study.

It is more about the philosophy and practice of unconventional warfare generally. What it essentially shows is that the United States approach is too conventional to be able to effectively wage unconventional war.

This is, nevertheless a positive and constructive book. It is just as relevant to unconventional warfare in a marine setting.
