A large part of current U.S. COIN doctrine (Counter-Insurgency) that was re-vamped and rolled out around 2006 to ground pounders in Iraq and A-Stan is based upon the lessons learned by the British during the Malayan Emergency. Think Tankers like David Kilcullen wrote extensively on it in books like The Accidental Guerilla and Out of the Mountains. It would do the Armed Citizen justice to study up on these TTP going forward for obvious reasons!
