  • “An Evening of Counterinsurgency at the Pritzker Military Library”

    Posted by onparkstreet on November 19th, 2009 (All posts by )

    Hearts and minds? Overrated. If you want to run a successful counterinsurgency, it all starts with the person at the top.

    On Thursday, December 3rd, Mark Moyar will appear at the Pritzker Military Library to discuss his new book, A Question of Command: Counterinsurgency from the Civil War to Iraq.

    Small Wars Journal

    I’m not sure that I’ll be able to make this program at the Pritzker Military Library (Chicago). It’s always touch-and-go with me and early evening talks – work and all that. Hopefully, some of the chicagoboyz readership will be able to attend!

    Update: Thomas Rid reviews the book here, “Mark Moyar pitches his book as a challenge to that thesis. Counterinsurgency must not be just population-centric. Nor can it be merely enemy-centric, as conventional wars against opposing armies were. No, successful counterinsurgency is “leader-centric.”
