Counterinsurgency Lessons Learned
The focus of this lessons learned collection is on fundamentals of counterinsurgency and insurgency, and execution of counterinsurgency, to include Security Force Assistance and Stability Operations. Other aspects of operations that are already satisfactorily covered in Army literature are not included, such as Counter IED, Combat Operations, Site Exploitation, Personnel Recovery, Force Protection, and general warfighting function lessons from Intelligence, Sustainment, etc.
Lessons in this collection are first derived from unit after action reports and interviews with recently deployed unit leaders. Many other sources such as studies and scholarly articles are also reviewed and considered for operational as well as strategic lessons. This collection is continually updated as more lessons are researched. Units or personnel may contribute observations, insights, and lessons for consideration for this collection.
