4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe flawed - still worth reading, 18 May 2014

This review is from: Out of the Mountains: The Coming Age of the Urban Guerrilla (Hardcover)
Finally had time to read 'Out of the Mountains'. It is a good easy read, with examples given for each point, some from his most recent consultancy work with Caerus Associates, his own experiences and a host of footnotes - alas at the back.

Given his thesis that the future is urban guerilla warfare in the megacities I was surprised he had so little support from those who already face the problems now - such as Mumbai.

From my armchair I am unconvinced that suffiecent Western understanding will come from the collection and analysis of 'big data' from such places. How much data do megacities produce and is it reliable? Given the current NATO (mainly US) experience, doctrine and equipment - could they adapt and intervene without local 'big data'?

I was particularly interested in the section on the Mumbai attack by LeT in November 2008, as this supports my viewpoint. Nariman House, the Jewish cultural centre's actual presence was unknown to the local police and intelligence bodies; it had been purchased in 2006.

This review is from: Out of the Mountains: The Coming Age of the Urban Guerrilla (Hardcover)
This is an excellent piece of work, thought provoking and very current. It's easy to read and so relevant to future combat that i think anybody with an interest in the future of warfare should read tis urgently.
