Abstract

Shortly after settling the conquered world, the imperial powers developeda military concept for the occupation and, where they deemed it necessary, for thepacification of their variegated possessions. A vast literature, embracing both thetheory and the practice of such operations, developed. The British, following thefashionable ideas of the Victorian soldier-philosopher, Colonel C.E. Callwell,adopted the concept of small wars, a term applied to a variety of scenarios; Callwell,in fact, enumerated seven categories of potential enemies ranging from wellstructuredarmies to guerrillas and irregular cavalry.
