Libro La Guerra Moderna Roger Trinquier Pdf 18

La Guerra Moderna (Modern Warfare) is a book written by Roger Trinquier, a French military officer who fought in the Indochina War and the Algerian War. The book was first published in France in 1961 under the title La Guerre Moderne and later translated into English by Daniel Lee with an introduction by Bernard B. Fall. The book is considered a classic of counterinsurgency theory and practice, as it analyzes the nature and challenges of modern warfare, especially against irregular forces such as guerrillas and terrorists.

Trinquier argues that conventional warfare, based on the principles of Clausewitz, is obsolete and ineffective in the face of modern warfare, which he defines as "an interlocking system of actions political, economic, psychological, military that aims at the overthrow of the established authority in a country and its replacement by another regime". He claims that modern warfare requires a new military doctrine that adapts to the specific conditions and objectives of each conflict, and that integrates all aspects of national power, including intelligence, propaganda, law enforcement, administration, and diplomacy. He also advocates for the use of special forces, such as commandos and paratroopers, to conduct direct action against the enemy's clandestine organization and infrastructure.


The book is divided into three parts: the first part describes the characteristics and methods of modern warfare; the second part examines the errors and inadequacies of traditional warfare; and the third part proposes solutions and recommendations for conducting modern warfare. Some of the main topics covered in the book are: the need to adapt the military apparatus to modern warfare; the definition and example of a clandestine warfare organization; terrorism as the principal weapon of modern warfare; identifying and neutralizing the adversary; defending the territory; conducting counter-guerrilla operations; and conducting modern warfare in enemy territory.

The book draws on Trinquier's personal experience and observations from his participation in the Indochina War (1946-1954) and the Algerian War (1954-1962), as well as his study of other conflicts such as the Chinese Civil War (1927-1949), the Malayan Emergency (1948-1960), and the Congo Crisis (1960-1965). The book also reflects Trinquier's controversial views on the use of torture, assassination, and repression as legitimate means to achieve victory in modern warfare. Trinquier was involved in several covert operations and counter-terrorism activities during his career, such as Operation X in Indochina, Operation Resurrection in France, and Operation Charly in Katanga. He was also a member of the Organisation de l'armée secrète (OAS), a right-wing paramilitary group that opposed Algerian independence and attempted to assassinate President Charles de Gaulle.

La Guerra Moderna is a seminal work that influenced many military thinkers and practitioners around the world, such as David Galula, Charles Lacheroy, David Petraeus, John Nagl, H.R. McMaster, and David Kilcullen. The book is still relevant today, as many of the concepts and challenges discussed by Trinquier are applicable to contemporary conflicts such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Mali, Nigeria, Colombia, and others. The book is available online in PDF format for free download.
