Abstract : Thirty cases of insurgency form the empirical foundation for this research. This monograph provides more detail on the cases analyzed in the accompanying volume, Victory Has a Thousand Fathers: Sources of Success in Counterinsurgency. As a prelude to the case histories, we briefly elaborate on how the cases were selected, how the data were collected, and how each case was divided into phases to better illustrate the progress and context of each case and the subsequent effect on the case outcome.
