Nations in Arms: The Theory and Practice of Territorial Defense
Nations in Arms: The Theory and Practice of Territorial Defense
By Adam Roberts
Praeger, 1976, 288 pp

The author has probably given more hard thought, over more years, than anyone else to the use of nonprofessional, "citizen" armies in guerrilla-type warfare for national defense. Much of the discussion uses Sweden and Yugoslavia as examples. A solid, definitive work published under the auspices of the International Institute for Strategic Studies.
