 Definition An influential French guerrilla and counterguerrilla officer in the 1950s and 1960s, best known for his work in Indochina (i.e. before the French left) in the extended Vietnam War, and in the Algerian War of Independence. He is one of the very few doctrinal writers to have endorsed even the controlled use of torture. [d] [e]


Link one and two from the references load up fine for me. Link 3 loads up the site it is linking to, but says that the specific page is no longer available. Link 4 does not load up for me at all - it just says error. David Finn 09:35, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

We certainly should search for the book text, which is extremely important and should be online somewhere. There may be a French version, for which I never searched. As I remember, this was a commercial translation, rights to which were then bought by the U.S. Army -- I don't remember if it was the Command and General Staff College, or one of the research groups at Fort Leavenworth, such as the Combat Studies Institute.
