Abstract:

Military strategy and the principles of war are an important part of our basic Air Force doctrine. Although their use does not necessarily guarantee battlefield success, historically, they have played an important role in all levels of conflict, even guerrilla warfare. This study evaluates whether or not Che Guevara and Fidel Castro used military strategy, as stated in the ACSC strategy process model, and the principles of war, as stated in AFM 1-1, during the Cuban Revolution. The study concludes that they did and it contributed to their victory.
