In the latest Short History book from Casemate Peter Polack picks 10 guerrilla leaders and examines their tactics, personal history and political strategy. It’s not exhaustive, obviously, and there are plenty of others who could make a case for inclusion. However, once past William Wallace and George Washington it is biased towards modern leaders. The rest cover Venezuala, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, China, Vietnam, Colombia, Angola and Sri Lanka. It’s not all successful insurgencies either, some of these made notable political statements but ultimately failed. Interesting, and pocket sized guide.
