Narrating over thirty centuries of "unconventional" military conflicts, best-selling author and military historian Max Boot has created a work that traces guerrilla warfare and terrorism from antiquity to the present. Challenging the conventional wisdom that irregular warfare is the historical exception, Boot demonstrates that loosely organized partisan or guerrilla warfare is the norm, and that it is the clash of conventional, uniformed military forces that is the historical anomaly.
