This study identifies the tenets of a Maoist style insurgency, and the benefits derived from mass support. It then narrates a history of CAP and identifies its strengths and weaknesses. This study then analyzes CAPs ability to reduce the benefits of mass support received by the insurgent. Finally, this study makes recommendations for the future employment of CAP.
