Meaning of Guerrilla Warfare

The word Guerrilla (Spanish) is derived from Guerra which means "war". The "Guerrilla warfare" means " a mode of harassing an enemy by small bands." A member of such a band is called "Guerrilla".
"Guerrilla warfare," thus is "an irregular war waged independently by small bodies. At present, this term is used to represent a method of conducting war by employing bands living in an area occupied by enemy. Guerrilla warfare, unlike regular warfare, which is the concern of the armed forces, is carried on by fighters who may be either private citizens or regular soldiers cut of from their main force.
