In late 1902 and early 1903, Capt. Pershing implemented very deliberate, methodical, and unspectacular counterinsurgency tactics in neutralizing Maranao Moro insurgency in Lanao—nothing flashy or especially innovative or brilliant. But when military success is measured by victory after victory achieved without massive loss of life, especially to his own troops, his Lake Lanao campaigns proved remarkably successful and made him into a hero among his countrymen.
