Military Review, May/June 2007
“This fine book is easy to read, and I enthusiastically recommend it to Military Review’s readers and to anyone who has read or is considering reading Thomas Hammes’s Sling and the Stone. Because of its outstanding historical perspective, Fighting the War on Terror can be read alone, as a complement to Hammes, or as a foundation for secondary readings – it’s that good.”
Midwest Book Review, May 2007
“Dr. Corum is one of the Army’s top experts on counterinsurgency warfare, and it’s this background which packs Fighting the War on Terror."
USNI Proceedings, July 2007
“[Corum] pulls no punches … From well-known to obscure efforts, his historical analysis of counterinsurgencies and the role of key elements or lessons in his analysis is a major strength of the book … The author’s strong arguments and the extensive historical analysis he provides make for an excellent read. Readers may not agree with all of his points and recommendations but will have to admit that he provides compelling arguments on what is crucial in developing a truly effective COIN capability and strategy. Innovative thinking, adaptation, and strong leadership are important skills required to meet today’s challenges in the military and with all partners in this war. Fighting the War on Terror reinforces the requirement of these key skills.”
