About the Book

General Sir Michael Rose exposes a grim reality: Iraqi insurgents have adopted the same guerrilla warfare tactics used during the American Revolution. George Washington commanded a ragtag, undisciplined band of rebels, yet their revolution ended with an American victory. Washington succeeded in defeating the most powerful army in the world--not by engaging in conventional warfare, at which the British excelled, but by waging an insurgency campaign of ambush and indirect attacks.
