A study of Geronimo will bear this out. he terrorized two countries and their armies for roughly 20 years with usually about 30 warriors at any given time. Large armies require huge logistics, guerrillas don't require very much at all.
When your enemy is invisible it's pretty hard to get a good aim on him.
