Not just a military book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife: Counterinsurgency Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam (Paperback)
This book is principally one of organisational culture and organisational learning set in the historical context of `small wars' / counter insurgency. It compares how the British Army successfully evolved to counter insurgency in Malaya with the US experience in Vietnam. The paperback edition has the advantage of the authors reflections after a tour as a battalion operations officer in Iraq. This however is a book with value beyond a military context.
