Drawn from current Army doctrine, this concise and readable manual offers combat leaders and staff officers tactical-level guidance for commanding, planning, coordinating, and controlling operations in a low-intensity environment.
Over services are frequently and consistently involved in low-intensity conflict: Operation Provide Comfort, Operation Urgent Fury, Operation Nimord Dancer, UN peacekeeping operations around the globe, and counternarcotics operations along our southern border and waters and in other nations are example.
In this “how-to” approach at the tactical level, Jim Gallagher, for the first time and with considerable vision, holistically approaches LIC in once document. As a former command3r of U.S. Forces Grenda, I can attest firsthand to the value of his work. It’s a notable contribution to understanding LIC doctrine in its broadest sense. Regrettably, LIC is going to be around for some time. Thus, LOW-INTENSITY CONFLICT: A Guide for Tactics, Techniques and Procedure should be uppermost on our Military reading lists for officers and NCOs. – LTG Jack B. Farris, USA (Ret.)
