Chewing Sands contributions about insurgency and counterinsurgency operations take readers through a pedagogical process for understanding these two distinct forms of irregular warfare. Designed as the key text to a semester long counterinsurgency operations course at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the book gives readers a fundamental command of key concepts critical to winning in these wars. First, this book develops a fundamental understanding of insurgencies from the strategic, tactical, and systemic viewpoints, including the origins of insurrection; strategic types and strengths; tactical prescriptions of historical insurgents; and insurgent systems. Readers then explore counterinsurgency operations from strategic, operational, and tactical viewpoints as they examine types of counterinsurgent strategies and operational prescriptions, gaining pragmatic tools ready for application. Chewing Sand blends academic and operational insights by using writings from successful insurgents and counterinsurgents to reinforce scholarly theories. Finally, this book presents two successful case studies and one failed case study, inviting reader analysis and practical application of concepts introduced earlier in the book. Nosorog designed this book specifically for military scientists who are trying to grasp this unique form of warfare, not just as it applies to contemporary conflicts but also as it applies to all forms counterinsurgency that the U.S. military should anticipate for years to come.
