There is nothing new in asymmetric warfare. In the battle of Agincourt in 1415, English infantry armed with longbows crushed shining French knights on horseback. Excluding the shared American and Soviet cold war concept of MAD - mutually assured destruction - all warfare has been asymmetric, says Phillip Wilkinson of King's College, London.

Get on and write it yourself you lazy feckwit. You were given this essay in order to test your ability to do the research and draw some sensible conclusions and you won't demonstrate that by blagging it off the internet in general or this forum in particular.

Bloody YOs! In my day... blah, blah blah...

And you are the future - god help us.

Presumably you are being assessed for your suitability for promotion. The answer is "NOT YET" I think.

Any chance you could add a few vowels to your posts?

Yes, you may find some stuff on the internet which will be worth reading but it probably won't be either comprehensive or sufficient to complete your essay. You would be better off going to your local military library and enlisting the help of the librarian to trawl through back issues of BAR, RUSI journal etc for the information you need.

Now, I'm off back to my leather armchair to read the Telegraph, harumph occasionally and expire from high blood pressure.

Are you able to write in a cohesive manner? Did you fail English Literature at school?

PS punctuation does not extend to just ! & ?

God help us all!!!! 8O
I presume they are keeping you busy in a corner writing this so that you don't break anything? :wink:
Ok..I'm gna help ya viv ya problem :lol:
The shape of the essay- Three parts. First briefly write what it is that you are going to tell us, then write it, then briefly tell us what you have told us.
Tell us briefly what assymetric warfare is.
Then explain existing army doctrine and move on to discussing the impact of the new type of threat.
So write the main body of the essay first, then you can do the beginning and the end of the essay from that.
Sorted :D
What the fukc is assymetric warfare?! :lol:

I am intrigued at you being asked to write an essay on this as a Lcpl in the REME. Is this as prep for some sort of promotions board? Or do you not have much work to do at your unit? I'm not slating you, i am genuinely interested as when I was a lance jack I was mainly asked to do litter sweeps and the like. I was however in the signals :?
