Guerrilla Logistics

The knowledge that the urban guerrilla possesses of the terrain, and the devices he uses or is capable of using, such as scouts specially prepared and recruited for this mission, are the basic elements in solving the eternal logistics problems faced by the guerrillas. (Image from here.)

As the Moor once noted: ‘As Don Quixote had protested with his lance against gunpowder, so the guerrillas protested against Napoleon, only with different success. “These guerrillas,” says the Austrian Military journal (Vol. I, 1821), “carried their basis in themselves, as it were, and every operation against them terminated in the disappearance of its object.”’
