David Galula's seminal work, Counterinsurgency: Theory and Practice evolved directly from a thesis he had written while attending the U.S. Armed Forces Staff College in 1960. The thesis itself was the product of 15 years of deliberation on how to counter communist subversion and revolution. Today, Galula's writings continue to be highly applicable and relevant to modern conflicts and theaters of war.
