Yes. I've read,and talked or exchanged letters with, Fertiq, as well as
Blackburn and a number of others while they were still alive. And your
example of Willoughby fighting the Navy, while true, did not take place
until after the guerrillas were already up an running. AIB also was a
latecomer, so to speak.
There is a SWPA Intelligence study under WWII on Carlisle's web site on
guerrilla resistance in the PI.
But, we'd better take this discussion to MILHST-L or WWII-L, where it

It is also a good question about how much the CIA actually had to offer in
the first place, even it there had been good communication/information
exchange between FECOM and the CIA, since when the KW began the Agency had
only a station chief, one case officer and a typist, all at the Embassy.
