Guerrilla - Growth during the 20th century - Netflix
Irregular warfare, based on elements later characteristic of modern guerrilla warfare, has existed throughout the battles of many ancient civilizations. The growth of guerrilla warfare in the 20th century was inspired in part by theoretical works on guerrilla warfare, starting with the Manual de Guerra de Guerrillas by Matías Ramón Mella written in the 19th century and, more recently, Mao Zedong's On Guerrilla Warfare, Che Guevara's Guerrilla Warfare, and Lenin's text of the same name, all written after the successful revolutions carried by them in Cuba, China and Russia, respectively. Those texts characterized the tactic of guerrilla warfare as, according to Che Guevara's text, being
“used by the side which is supported by a majority but which possesses a much smaller number of arms for use in defense against oppression”.
