Abstract : The author examines the historic background of guerrilla warfare and compares the Spanish and the Russian tradition. He documents the direct Soviet involvement in guerrilla operations in the Spanish Civil War, and he examines guerrilla activities province by province. He concludes that guerrilla warfare makes a moderately effective contribution to conventional military operations, but a frequently decisive means of mobilizing popular support for unconventional political operations.
