This paper for the most part, is merely a compilation from British sources concerning a modern small war. Since it occurred, there has been an improvement in weapons, particularly aircraft, and it may be noted that had the British been equipped with the Thompson Submachine Gun, they would have found it to be a most useful and powerful weapon.
Operations were on a considerably larger scale than those normally undertaken by Marine Corps Expeditionary Forces, and the opposition was much more formidable than are normally encountered in Marine Corps operations.
