Method of fighting used by the Viet Cong that was
a protocol for survival rather than victory. Best suited for the jungle, Guerrilla
warfare called for the placement of booby traps and the use of sneak attacks to
damage the enemy critically while minimizing losses. This style of fighting was
not meant for victory, but rather as an alternative to be being massacred in head
to head combat. If the guerrillas could slowly demoralize the enemy, then victory
could ultimately be achieved, no matter what the losses. Guerrillas fought to
the death; there was no other alternative.
