  • "fr. literally small war. It is that species of warfare, which is carried on by detached parties from the army; and consists in surprising the enemy’s post, convoys and escorts, planting ambuscades, and putting in practice every stratagem that can be used against the adverse army. An officer who succeeds well in carrying on the petite guerre, does as much honor to himself, as to succeed in a general engagement on the field."
