Guerrilla Warfare Tactics & Strategies

The term militia is commonly used today to refer to a military force composed of ordinary citizens to provide defense, emergency law enforcement, or paramilitary service, in times of emergency without being paid a regular salary or committed to a fixed term of service.

Guerrilla warfare is the unconventional warfare and combat with which a small group of combatants use mobile tactics (ambushes, raids, etc.) to combat a larger and less mobile formal army. The guerrilla army uses ambush (draw enemy forces to terrain unsuited to them) and mobility (advantage and surprise) in attacking vulnerable targets in enemy territory.

With the combination of elements of both guerrilla and militia styled organisations, extremely effective, small groups of combatants have successfully taken on and beaten much larger armies.

The books in this category detail the strategies, organisation and specific techniques militias in history have used to conquer their enemies through the employment of guerrilla warfare tactics.
