Do not fill this in!===Dutch Empire=== The Dutch formulated a new strategy of counter-insurgency warfare, during the [[Aceh War]] by deploying light-armed Marechaussee units and using scorched earth tactics. In 1898 [[Van Heutsz]] was proclaimed governor of Aceh, and with his lieutenant, later Dutch Prime Minister [[Hendrikus Colijn]], would finally conquer most of Aceh. They followed Hurgronje's suggestions, finding cooperative ''uleebelang'' or secular chiefs that would support them in the countryside and isolating the resistance from their rural support base.
