Abstract

The Book of Mormon’s account of the Gadianton robbers and their guerrilla warfare tactics is starkly realistic and very different than the type of warfare familiar to 19th century Americans. This provides good evidence of the Book of Mormon’s authenticity and warns against similar terrorist organizations in our day.
