(n.) Usually local band of militia who use thier knowledge of the terrain to thier advantage by ambushing and never engaging in open warfare. The Guerilla units are much often smaller than the force they take on, and due to thier fear of open warfare, they are often labelled as cowards by real armies. The Guerillas are usually considered to be more of a terrorist organisation than anything else, and are best countered by another guerilla unit attacking "thier" people. This counter-Guerilla unit will effectively flush them out or recede to the point where they are almost non-problematic.


This has best been seen with the IRA. In the 70's and 80's, Loyalists who believed the British government was going to give in to the IRA took up arms against the IRA. For every IRA attack that took place, a Loyalist one followed. This is not to mention that in the 90's, the Loyalists performed a number of assassinations on seemingly "untouchable" IRA suppliers, members and sympathists. Over this period, the UVF actually killed more people than the IRA did, although this is over-looked. When the number of IRA attacks went down, so did that of the Loyalists, until the "peace" agreements a few years ago. Splinter factions of both will continue to attack eachother, but they know that the IRA will never achieve the goal it set out to do.
Guerilla units are best destroyed by either similar units, or wreckless and intrusive army massives.

A huge tribe of 30,000 warriors who inhabited Zululand, which is in present day South Africa. The British army decided to conquer zululand, and setup small garrisons of troops to scout it. These were massacred by the Zulu's, and so enraged, the Mighty British Empire rained its' fury on the tribesmen. For several weeks the Zulu tribes laid low, hoping to evade detection. But some 1,200 British Troops and 300 tag-alongs (peaceful natives, soldiers wives etc.) were cut off by water and decided to camp in territory the zulu's were watching. Overnight, the Zulu's gathered and sent 7,000 soldiers onto the camp, killing all but a handful of tag-alongs who escaped when they heard screaming. The Zulu took thier guns and marched on Rorke's Drift, a small military hosital. Rorke's drift was manned by 97 ready soldiers, housed 36 wounded, 14 helpful natives five officers and two lieutenants, one of which was new to the area. They recieved news of the impending Zulu attack, but the new liuetenant demanded that they stay to defend the hospital and chapel. A passing preacher intimidated the natives to throw down thier guns and leave, because of the extreme odds. With Just 141 soldiers (One of the tag-alongs rushed to help them) they took on 4,500 Zulu warriors, 1,200 of which were armed and killed 2,500 Zulus. In comparison, 15 British died on the day, and 8 later died of battle wounds before the Zulu's saluted fellow braves and left. Rorke's Drift signalled the unparalled training of the British amry, but also that the Zulu army, which had impressive capabilities, wouldn't even last until 1880 (Rorke's drift was 22nd-23rd January 1879). Eventually, the Zulu army had to surrender, and became the exploit of the rich. Zulu tribesmen still inhabit South Africa's east coast and centre, but are no longer the dominating force.
The British have much to thank the Zulu for. What was the most impossible military victory ever occured against the zulu, and allowed the victors to return home instilling a strong sense of national pride.
