Defeating Communist Insurgency:
Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam
Sir Robert Thompson
This book is written based on the author's personal experience of twelve years of the 'Emergency' in Malaya and three years as Head of the British Advisory Mission in South Vietnam. Thompson looks at the theories of insurgency and counter-insurgency gleaned from these experiences. He is concerned more with the administrative necessities of running a counter-insurgency campaign rather than battle operational details. 171 pages with maps.
