Seán Keating, The Men of the West (courtesy of TCD Library)Unconventional Warfare: Guerrillas and Counter-Insurgency from Iraq to Antiquity
Guerrilla warfare, like the guerrilla himself, comes in many guises. Whether defined as la petite guerre, kleiner krieg, the now archetypal guerrilla, the more modern insurgency or the even more recent asymmetric warfare, the phenomenon of fast-moving, irregular forces employing hit-and-run tactics against a more orthodox army has been a constant of armed conflict from antiquity. This one-day workshop in the Centre for War Studies brings together scholars from Ireland, the UK, Europe and the US to trace the lived experience and historical representation of guerrilla warfare from the twentieth century to antiquity.
