Warfare in the Enemy's Rear by Otto Heilbrunn

Warfare in the Enemy's Rear by Otto Heilbrunn describes various guerrilla, commando and partisan operations from World War II and tries to develop the best practices for the future. There is an excellent summary of operations specifically on the Eastern front that I was unaware of. Some of his conclusions could be debated. There's in appendices that includes the instructions given to the British forces in the Burma campaign. The book contains footnotes and a bibliography.


Is available through Abebooks.
