Small Wars Journal

Counterinsurgency event video now posted

The video from last week's

Conversation and Book Signing with Dave Kilcullen is now posted, on the

Marine Corps Association

YouTube channel.  Part one of eight below, the other parts are accessible

through the related videos links or: 








Dave Kilcullen kicks off 1:42 into the clip, after we acknowledge the sponsors that

made the event possible.

There's a synopsis of the discussion in

this post at the Gazette.

There was a great demand for Dr. Kilcullen's latest book,

Counterinsurgency.  All that book signing was thirsty work; fortunately,

no one went thirsty or hungry.  We're also glad we were able to present Dave

a small token of our appreciation of his long support for and involvement with Small

Wars Journal.

Again, our thanks to:

I finally got around to viewing this and I wish I had done so sooner. It was one of the most interesting and insightful things I have seen.

Two examples of many, many points gone over-how the French alpine troops in Afghanistan decide who to whack and why and what FM 3-24 actually was, why it doesn't contain some things, how that can lead some astray and it's an old book.

A completely fascinating presentation.
