|When Your Enemy is Conducting A War of Annihilation
In Warfare there consists of Regular Military Forces and Irregular Military Forces of which sides of any conflict use.
Since I prefer to keep things as simple and clear as possible I will not be using a jumble of complex military terms along with their various definitions, which usually just complicates what I am trying to write about so when I refer to Guerilla Warfare and the Guerillas or Soldiers who use these specialized techniques and tactics.
However is the reader does want to clutter up their mind with some of the many and complex terms feel free to research the following other related terms: Guerrillas, Guerrilla Warfare, Partisans, Unconventional Warfare, Irregular Warfare, Asymmetric Warfare, Special Forces, Recondo, Commando, Reconnaissance, Sniper, Scouts, Airborne, etc.
During this article I will be using only the Terms "Commandos", "Guerrilla Warfare" and "Guerrillas" to describe a certain type of Warfare and those who are Specially Trained for "Unconventional Warfare" which is often referred to as "Irregular Military Forces". There may be some people who like and enjoy the complexity of terms but I am of the opinion that rather your instructing Officers, NCO's or Enlisted Men in preparation for war, keep things as simple, direct and easy to understand as possible.
Guerrillas, Partisans and Resistance Fighters generally refer to civilians that have joined in a war to fight against an enemy which may be either a foreign invading force or an internal enemy who may consist of their own countrymen during a time of revolution or civil war brought on by Political, Religious, Ethnic or Racial differences and conflicts. These Guerrillas Forces or units may be under the direction of Regular Military Forces and aided and supplied by Special Forces or Commandos or they may not be. They may resupply themselves by that which they can take from ambushing and killing enemy forces.
The term Guerrilla Warfare is used to describe a certain Unconventional Warfare Tactics and Techniques used by Guerrillas to fight an enemy but is also used by Irregular Military Forces which have been specially trained in Unconventional or Guerrilla Warfare often referred to as Commandos or Special Forces.
