Counterinsurgency : principles and practices in Viet-Nam by James Farmer( Book )

4 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The criteria and indicators used for measuring success in counterinsurgency are discussed. Three phases of guerrilla warfare are described. It is concluded that a military victory is not possible for the Viet-Cong in South Viet-Nam as long as the U.S. is supporting the government. U.S. financial contribution is compared to U.S. and French costs of the 1945-1954 Indo-China war, and technical assistance and direct military support measures and their effects on the scarce resources--trained manpower, communications, transportation, and government infrastructures--are described. The principles of Viet-Cong tactics are listed and illustrated. The paper suggests the problems of motivating the Vietnamese soldier to fight a war which he no longer feels will be won in the near future
