And it wasn't part of the 1st world back then.

Tanks and aircraft, when used on a strategic level, prove useless. But Canadian Afghan experience, and American experience in Iraq right now is that tanks are actually very valuable when attached in small numbers directly to infantry units. They can easily settle fire fights and provide accurate direct fire heavy support. The same for aircraft, ground-attack aircraft equipped with precision munitions are a blessing, as are helicopters.

I am sure that there were some Confederate forces that had to resort to guerilla warfare.

There hasn't been major first world guerilla warfare because the first world has regular militaries that don't collapse easily. As a result the entire war lasts in conventional form.

My fellow comrades!!

I would greatly appreciate it if you could give me advice on a good book consisting of guerilla war tactics.

I strongly recommend that you familiarise yourself with the basic principles of warfare first.

Yes. It's much better to start by familiarizing yourself with modern warfare in general, studying some recent conflicts, and only when you have a firm grasp of the basics, moving on to looking at guerilla warfare in particular. It's no good to you if a guerilla warfare book says striking enemy C4ISTAR is vital, when you don't know what C4ISTAR is.

Or on a conceptual level it's the combination of C3 (command control and communications, basically the command structure) with computerization and intellingence, and STAR which is tactical battlefield awareness and targeting. Effectively it's the whole chain of command from the 5-star general in pentagon, to the FCS of an M1A2 Abrams in Iraq which just acquired a T-72 in its sights.
