PREFACE
Guerrilla warfare is essentially a political war. Therefore, its area of operations exceeds the territorial limits of conventional warfare, to penetratethe political entity itself: the "political animal" that Aristotle defined.In effect, the human being should be considered the priority objectivein a political war. And conceived as the military target of guerrilla war, thehuman being has his most critical point in his mind. Once his mind has beenreached, the "political animal" has been defeated, without necessarilyreceiving bullets.Guerrilla warfare is born and grows in the political environment; inthe constant combat to dominate that area of political mentality that isinherent to all human beings and which collectively constitutes the"environment" in which guerrilla warfare moves, and which is whereprecisely its victory or failure is defined.This conception of guerrilla warfare as political war turnsPsychological Operations into the decisive factor of the results. The target,then, is the minds of the population, all the population: our troops, theenemy troops and the civilian population.This book is a manual for the training of guerrillas in psychologicaloperations, and its application to the concrete case of the Christian anddemocratic crusade being waged in Nicaragua by the Freedom Commandos.Welcome!
