"Kilcullen is to be applauded for his effort to impose strategic order on the threat of Islamist movements..."--Colin Jackson, Navel War College
"This book gives the reader much more than a better understanding of the situation in Iraq and Afganistan. It encapsulates numerous particularly relevant insights into the tactical, operational, and strategic challenges of counterinsurgency; plus it offers the most succinct overview of how to wage a global counterinsurgency anywhere." --Army History
