Description:
This book is a scholarly and useful work on how the American military adapted to counterinsurgency during the Iraq war, both on the ground and in the classrooms of Fort Leavenworth, where most of the Army's thinking gets done. The book captures the Army's self-inflicted amnesia about counterinsurgency in the wake of Vietnam and the difficult steps needed to relearn old lessons.
Framing the reorientation -- A troubled history -- Revisiting counterinsurgency -- Innovation under fire -- Counterinsurgency and the QDR -- FM 3-24 and Operation Fardh Al-Qanoon -- The ambivalence of the "Surge" -- Innovation or inertia -- Conclusion: kicking the counterinsurgency syndrome?
