    Is there anyway to get a hold of the USMC "small wars" book?

    Thanks.

    I ordered my copy off of Amazon.com about three years ago.

    It's still available... LINK

      As always in these occasions, I try to avoid Amazon as much as possible since they often have trouble with shipment to Israel...

      BTW, can I have your input of the book?
      They seem to suggest 2 other books that go along with it-

      The U.S. Army/Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual by Sarah Sewall

      Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife: Counterinsurgency Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam by John A. Nagl


      Does anyone know them?

          I will as soon as I have the chance too...

          But before that, I'm interested in 'small wars' for it's professional value...

            I Believe it's Free.

            Golani,

            I'm going to double-check for you but I think it's online at the CARL Digitial Library, either under General Military History or WWII Documents.

            I'm not that familiar with it, so I don't know if there were different versions published over several years. I think the free one is from sometime in the 1920's or 30's. I'll let you know what I find.

            Cheers,
            Dan.

              First of all thank you, but I got a someone that's looking after me in the small wars field now

              I think I'm going to dig in that digital library though...

              Right now I'm interested in some input on the companion books,
