“Longtime defense analyst John Sutherland has provided the entire defense community with a unique, tour de force analysis of the many factors driving the changing face of warfare."
(PRWEB) May 28, 2015
Fast moving events and the accumulation of vital, new information prompted History Publishing Company to move iGuerilla to the new publication date of June 25, 2015, in order to bring a greater understanding of the jihadist threat to southern Europe. The author, a Senior Analyst for the Department of Defense, imparts in " iGuerilla," the title of the author’s forthcoming book and the name the author fashioned for the modern day jihadist Janissaries, a growing awareness of the buildup in North and Central Africa as a rallying point for Jihad forces to cross the Mediteranean.
Author John Sutherland, a Senior Analyst and retired U.S. Army retired Lt. Colonel, has an information reach stretching to the distant flank of the jihadist armies. His sharp focus on Mali and Libya as building points for a jihadist thrust across the Mediterranean to southern Europe yields information vital to a work dealing in current events.
Written primarily, but not exclusively, for the military, "iGuerilla, Reshaping War in the 21st Century" with a Foreword by HR McMaster, author of "Dereliction of Duty," is a book that reaches across the spectrum of time and war in weaponry, technology, cyberspace, social media, and the battlefields in Syria and Iraq.
The forces behind the battles are also examined. Knowing and understanding the enemy is a study of Islam, and how the shia and sunni factions are in dramatic opposition to each other. How the Islamists effect that opposition and how the divisions and fractures have lead to internecine warfare. Illustrated too, are the far reaching tentacles of Iran in the middle east and into North Africa and South America with its proxies Hezbollah and Hamas with their objective goal, the pulling all the fractured pieces together in a world- wide caliphate.
The author imparts to the reader the step by step goals of the jihadists, their milestones, benchmarks, time lines, and the non-military techniques they will exercise to achieve their caliphate. He also imparts the techniques to counter and defeat them with the technological arsenal available and in development.
It is a comprehensive work that has caught the attention of those in advanced military studies. Peter J. Schifferle, a professor at the U.S. Army’s School of Advanced Military Studies said, “iGuerilla should be the first book packed in the duffel bag for those carrying the fight to the enemy,” and Major General Bill Hix, Deputy Director, Army Capabilities Integration Center at Fort Eustis said, “Longtime defense analyst John Sutherland has provided the entire defense community with a unique, tour de force analysis of the many factors driving the changing face of warfare. Sutherland's in depth work is not merely a survey of recent events, rather he ably ties together the impacts of events spanning a thousand years and their implications for 21st Century conflict. This one of a kind volume fills a void and must be on the shelf…you need to read this book.”
