Theory behind Guerrilla Warfare

The theory of Guerrilla warfare

“The enemy advances, we retreat; the enemy camps, we harass; the enemy tires, we attack; the enemy retreats, we pursue.” Mao Zedong.

Guerilla warfare is quite unlike conventional warfare. Instead of pitched battles and clear front lines this method of waging war opts for a range of alternatives. Hit and Run attacks are frequent and an ‘behind enemy lines’ approach is adopted. The theory is simple. In order to defeat an enemy that has a major advantage in terms of training and the quality of arms and equipment you need to be stealthy in your approach. You need to remain hidden from the enemy as far as is possible and make targeted attacks that will inflict maximum damage with a minimum of risk.
