Abstract:

The report is one of several studies on the organization and management of counterinsurgency responses in Southeast Asia funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency in an effort to learn what practical lessons they can teach. Four major real-life-cases--Malaya, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam--have been analyzed. It was considered that such lessons would be of particular value to the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the military services, and other Defense Department agencies concerned with planning, service education and training, and military assistance and advice.
