14. ABSTRACT
 
Military historical case studies provide insight for military planners. Military planners cannot afford toignore history when planning in today’s complex environment. This thesis analyzes military doctrinalchanges and adaptation during Britain’s Boer War and the French counterinsurgency war in Algeria. TheBoer War serves as an example of doctrinal change during a counterinsurgency campaign. The Frenchexperience demonstrates the difficult task of fighting against an ambiguous enemy who uses terrorism asits primary tactic. A counterinsurgency comparison and analysis focuses on three issues present in bothcase studies: population control measures, operational tactics, and the civil military operations. Theconclusion offers solutions to the military situation today based on the British and Frenchcounterinsurgency. This thesis argues history provides US military planners with the background todevelop a successful counterinsurgency strategy for today’s environment.
