More Information
4GW (Fourth Generation Warfare) is the only kind of war America has ever lost. And we have done so three times - in Vietnam, Lebanon, and Somalia. This form of warfare has also defeated the French in Vietnam and Algeria, and the USSR in Afghanistan... As the only Goliath left in the world, we should be worried that the world's Davids have found a sling and stone that work. -- Chapter 1, The Sling and the Stone: On War in the 21st Century

The War in Iraq. The War on Terror. These types of 'asymmetrical' warfare are the conflicts of the 21st century -- and show how difficult it is for the world's remaining superpower to battle insurgents and terrorists who will fight unconventionally in the face of superior military power. This change in military conflict may seem sudden.

In The Sling & the Stone Hammes details how 4GW has evolved over decades, with powerful military forces from economically advanced nations being defeated by seemingly weaker opponents.
