Abstract : The purpose of this report is to identify patterns and techniques of national and lower-scale insurgency conflicts in Latin America since 1900 in order to derive data of assistance to U.S. planning for R+D requirements of military counterinsurgency operations in Latin America. Specific features of insurgency in Latin America make it desirable that the report utilize the term insurgency in a broad sense and as inclusive of all types of violent actions against governmental authority short of civil war. The Castro insurgency in Cuba incorporated many typically Latin American features but also developed in a rural environment that was probably more favorable for guerrilla warfare than elsewhere in Latin America.
