Soldier or historian, if you're looking for a valid and still very applicable treatise on the subject of counter-insurgency, this book is "the" starting point. Galula and Nagl both expand on many of the principles first put forward in this tome. While the tone may be offensive to the more sensitive reader (Col. Callwell is an unapologetic colonialist), the lessons in it are pertinent to the modern commander in the field or to the historian looking for a military perspective on colonial warfare in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
