The Littlest Lieutenant Letters from Vietnam By Jean Fitzsimmons
Paperback: $15.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
The letters in this book were written for the most part by Jean Fitzsimmons to his family members. They begin as Jean, a second lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps, traveled for his first... More > tour of duty to Vietnam in October of 1969, and continue until his abrupt departure in September of 1970. The letters have been reproduced faithfully and are presented here in their original form—I only mention it because perhaps they shouldn’t be. The language is crude and colorful and, well, generally Marine-ish, but that’s kind of the point. Here are the words of a young Marine off to war: proud, scared, excited, apprehensive, moving, hilarious words. Jean wouldn’t have apologized for any of them then, and I won’t apologize for any of them now. Happy reading.< Less

With the last departure of U.S. combat forces from Iraq in 2011 and a drawdown in Afghanistan already underway, the current era of American counterinsurgency may be coming to a close. At the same... More > time, irregular threats to U.S. national interests remain, and the future may hold yet more encounters with insurgents for the U.S. military. Accordingly, the latest Defense strategic guidance has called on the Department of Defense (DoD) to “retain and continue to reine the lessons learned, expertise, and specialized capabilities” from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This monograph is a contribution to this ongoing effort to institutionalize the military’s understanding of counterinsurgency, building on its hard-won recent experience.

MRAPs, Irregular Warfare, and Pentagon Reform By Christopher J. Lamb, Matthew J. Schmidt, Berit G. Fitzsimmons
Paperback: $11.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
Mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles offer a case study for investigating the current debate over the Pentagon’s approach to developing and fielding irregular warfare capabilities.... More > Yet some analysts now argue that MRAPs are not really useful for irregular warfare and are prohibitively expensive. The authors conclude that MRAPs are a valid irregular warfare requirement and that the Pentagon should have been better prepared to field them, albeit not on the scale demanded by events in Iraq. Also, the failure to quickly field MRAPs lies not with the Pentagon’s acquisition system but rather the requirements process, reinforced by more fundamental organizational factors. These findings suggest that improving irregular warfare capabilities will require more extensive reforms than many realize. Originally published by the National Defense University< Less
