Montgomery and the First War on Terror

What a British Military Hero Can Teach Those Fighting Today's War on Terror

I am pleased to announce the publication of this military history book titled,

Montgomery and the First War on Terror

What a British Military Hero Can Teach Those Fighting Today's War on Terror.

It is published by Bretwalda Books but advanced copies are available through the Bruges Group.

As well serving on the volatile North West Frontier of the Raj prior to the First World War and again in the 1930s Bernard Law Montgomery, later Field Marshal Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, fought two wars on terror. He faced first the IRA in Ireland in the early 1920s when he commanded British troops in County Cork, hotbed of violence. Next he faced Islamic insurgents in Palestine during the Arab Revolt on the eve of World War II. In both conflicts he introduced new tactics, new training and new techniques that surprised and defeated his enemies. He also came to profound conclusions as to how the contrasting wars in Ireland and the Middle East should be handled.

Montgomery has, I believe, much to teach us. In this book I detail this little known period of Monty's career. I also look at the wider political situation and the lessons of Monty's counter-insurgency campaigns and how they should be applied today in the modern war on terror in Afghanistan. As well as learning the lessons from the earlier conflicts in Ireland and Palestine I also look at the lessons to be learned from the modern conflicts in Iraq (2003 – 2009) and Northern Ireland.
