In response to the irregular warfare challenges facing the U.S. in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2005, General James Mattisa€”then commander of Marine Corps Combat Development Commanda€”established a new Marine Corps cultural initiative. The goal was simple: teach Marines to interact successfully with the local population in areas of conflict. The implications, however, were anything but simple: transform an elite military culture founded on the principles of qlocate, close with, and destroy the enemyq into a qculturally savvyq Marine Corps. Culture in Conflict: Irregular Warfare, Culture Policy, and the Marine Corps examines the conflicted trajectory of the Marine Corps' efforts to institute a radical culture policy into a military organization that is structured and trained to fight conventional wars. More importantly, however, it is a compelling book about America's shifting military identity in a new world of unconventional warfare.See irregular warfare Small Wars Manual (U.S. Marine Corps), 110 SMEs.
