Afghanistan and the Troubled Future of Unconventional Warfare
The talk was hosted by the World Affairs Council of the Monterey Bay Area at Rancho Canada.
Hy Rothstein talked about his book, Afghanistan and the Troubled Future of Unconventional Warfare, published by Naval Institute Press, which is about the U.S. military’s successes and failures in Afghanistan. Professor Rothstein argued that the U.S. military had early success over the Taliban in Afghanistan because both sides fought using conventional tactics. He said that after December 2001, however, when the fighting became unconventional, the U.S. military lost the upper hand because it continued to fight conventionally and could not adapt. After his presentation he answered questions from members of the audience.
