Guerilla Warfare

Guerilla Warfare

 

 

 

Guerilla Warfare is a style of fighting that uses troops in a variety of ambushes and tactical operations in an area occupied by the enemy.

 

 

Only joking  that would be inhumane ------------>

(Bruce the Gorilla)

 

In all seriousness, Guerilla Warfare has played a major part in shaping history. The original roots of this style of war dates back to the Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu over 2000 years ago, and was described in his book, The Art of War. This style of warfare was especially evident in the Vietnam War where the Tet Offensive employed Guerilla tactics to defeat the US army.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Tactics and Strategy

 

The main tactics that Guerilla fighters introduced were ways to use ambush, intelligence, deceit to their advantage in a desolate environment. Guerilla skirmishes didn't last for very long becuase the element of suprise was devastating and once the damage had been done the fighters would retreat to a safe position to reconsider another attack on the enemy. Sometimes the withdrawl was the most important part of the campaign. Guerillas operate in a small area rather than in large open spaces.

 

 

                     

 

 


 

 

Guerilla Warfare during the Vietnam War

 

During the Vietnam War, the Vietcong became experts at guerilla warfare. With their extensive knowledge of the Vietnamese landscape they were able to gain the upper hand in the territorial war with the allies. Much of the Vietnam war was fought on plantations and in the jungle. This allowed a perfect arena for the guerilla tactics, where it was possible for the skirmishes to ambush the enemy. Ho Chi Minh used his guerillas to mainly attack small units on patrol in the mountains and jungles and to attack villages and raid cities. A famous battle in which guerilla tactics were used was the Battle of Long Tan.

Examples of Guerilla Warfare in History

 

Perhaps the most well known Guerilla campaign is the Viet Cong campaigns in the Vietnam war but there have been many more examples:

  • American Revolution
  • Both World Wars
  • Since the end of world War 2 Guerilla tactics have been mainly used in the Cold war and in Vietnam to thwart the Communist movement into the Western World.

Intersting font and pictures. Large font and small paragraphs make it easy to read and understand and keeps the readers attention.
The picture at the top is irrelevant.

It is very easy to understand but only because there is not alot of information. However the structure is very good and it is very easy to follow. There is serious lack of content as there is not alot written.

The wiki is visually sound as the pictures are interesting, different however sometimes irrelevant.It gets to the point and there is very little irrelevent text.

well done! :-)

Making our wiki was quite good and i think that we enjoyed it more than anybody else (except for maybe those loud people in the corner). I am fairly proud of my work, and I think that Chris and I worked well as a solid team. Although I didn't learn heaps about my chosen topic, other wiki pages were quite helpful. And did I help anybody else? You tell me.
