A masterpiece by a Soldier who truly understands COIN,
This review is from: The Counterinsurgency Challenge: A Parable of Leadership and Decision Making in Modern Conflict (Hardcover)
Chris Kolenda is a Soldier and gifted author who truly understands counterinsurgency. He is one our Nation's leading thinkers about strategy. This book is another terrific example of his ability to think broadly and then articulate his thoughts in a way that everyone can understand. I had the honor of serving with Chris twice, once in Afghanistan where he commanded a Task Force in a tough area where my unit provided artillery support. It was awe inspiring to see firsthand the transformation in "Area of Operations Sabre" as Chris's team applied his brilliant counterinsurgency strategy. A must read for all who consider themselves professional Soldiers.
