Orde Wingate remains one of the most controversial figures in British military history. His pioneering methods of counter-insurgency warfare, which worked by co-opting local rebels into disruptive guerrilla squads or ‘Chindits’, still attract criticism. In this re-examination of Wingate’s operations in Palestine, Ethiopia, India and Burma, including Longcloth and Thursday, Simon Anglim draws extensively on official and private papers, and argues that Wingate’s legacy has influenced recent military operations in Iran, Afghanistan and Libya.
