Introduction -- The Philippines (1899-1902) -- Algeria (1954-1962) -- Vietnam (1959-1972) -- El Salvador (1980-1992) -- Jammu and Kashmir (1947-present) -- Columbia (1963- present) -- Conclusions: Lessons learned for future counterinsurgencies.
Summary: As insurgent threats evolve and assume new forms, the United States must also evolve in its ability to counter potentially prolonged threats in several parts of the world. Because of the potential for global reach in contemporary insurgencies, the ability to draw on lessons learned from past counterinsurgency (COIN) campaigns using different historical cases can be valuable, helping current and future leaders prevent a repetition of mistakes and building a foundation on which to build contemporary responses. To this end, six historic COIN operations from the 19th and 20th centuries are examine.
