Allegiance and Ground…

In most forms of unconventional war, the objective is the allegiance of the people around whom, and presumably on whose behalf,  the conflict is taking place. The occupation of some specific bit of ground is secondary, if it matters at all.

Thomas K. Adams (US Special Forces Operations in Action: The Challenge of Unconventional Warfare, 1998)
