This Memorandum is one of a series of research studies on problems of counterinsurgency, undertaken by RAND for the Advanced Research Projects Agency. It stems from a decision to examine Japan's official reports and documents on its successful counterinsurgency operations in Manchuria in the nineteen-thirties where it was apparent that the problems faced by Japanese planners presented certain similarities to those encountered in other counterinsurgencies.
