Synopsis:

Long considered the masters of counterinsurgency, the British military encountered significant problems in Iraq and Afghanistan when confronted with insurgent violence. In their effort to apply the principles and doctrines of past campaigns, they failed to prevent Basra and Helmand from descending into lawlessness, criminality, and violence.

By juxtaposing the deterioration of these situations against Britain's celebrated legacy of counterinsurgency, this investigation identifies both the contributions and limitations of traditional tactics in such settings, exposing a disconcerting gap between ambitions and resources, intent and commitment. Building upon this detailed account of the Basra and Helmand campaigns, this volume conducts an unprecedented assessment of British military institutional adaptation in response to operations gone awry. In calling attention to the enduring effectiveness of insurgent methods and the threat posed by undergoverned spaces, David H. Ucko and Robert Egnell underscore the need for military organizations to meet the irregular challenges of future wars in new ways.

Book Description: The British military encountered significant problems in Iraq and Afghanistan when they tried to suppress insurgent violence, and their effort to apply the principles and doctrines of past wars failed to prevent Basra and Helmand from descending into violence.

Building upon this detailed account of the Basra and Helmand campaigns, the volume conducts an unprecedented assessment of the British military's institutional response to operations gone awry. In calling attention to the enduring prevalence of insurgent methods, Counterinsurgency in Crisis underscores the need for military organizations and governments alike to anticipate and prepare for the irregular wars of tomorrow.
