Modern Military Thought is Not Helpful In Revolutionary War

[A] friend brings up an important topic and that is that revolutionaries and soldiers, and revolution and combined arms warfare have little to do with each other.

You already hold the territory
Your objective is not to concentrate forces but to act randomly.
Your cost of territorial possession is zero.
Your timetable is long.
Your strategy is attrition.
Your preferred weapon is fire.
Your targets are all soft.
You need little command and control.
You need no supply lines.

Our military is terrible at fighting the new generation of civil warfare.
