Titles By Robert Taber
by Robert Taber
“The guerrilla fights the war of the flea, and his military enemy suffers the dog’s disadvantages: too much to defend; too small, ubiquitous, and agile an enemy to come to grips with.” With these words, Robert Taber began a revolution in conventional military thought that has dramatically impacted the way armed conflicts have been fought since the book’s initial publication in 1965. Whether ideological, nationalistic, or religious, all guerrilla insurgencies use similar tactics to advance their cause. War of the Flea's timeless analysis of the guerrilla fighter’s means and methods provides a fundamental resource for any reader seeking to understand this distinct form of warfare and the challenge it continues to present to today’s armed forces in the Philippines, Colombia, and elsewhere.

by Robert Taber
M-26: A Biography of the Cuban Revolution, first published in 1961, is a reporter’s account of the overthrow of the Batista regime and Fidel Castro’s successful rise to power. Author Robert Taber, a correspondent for CBS, details the political and economic situation which helped foster the revolution, plus chronicles events of the revolution and his experiences while living with the guerrilla fighters in Cuba’s mountainous interior. M26 (the name is from an earlier unsuccessful uprising—Movimiento Revolucionario—led by Castro in July, 1953) is a valuable resource for anyone seeking a well-written account of this critical period in Cuba’s history.
