American strategy in Vietnam : a critical analysis by Harry G Summers( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Required reading at The National, Naval, and Air War Colleges, as well as other high level military institutions throughout the United States, American Strategy in Vietnam has become one of the most-well-respected investigations of the strategic and tactical policies of the U.S. Army during the twentieth century. Crackling with keen insight and clarity, this invaluable resource has renewed the study of strategy and its vital relationship to the art of war. Drawing heavily on the brilliant theories of the great Prussian general Carl von Clausewitz, this is the definitive politico-military assessment of the Vietnam War. Instead of merely examining the individual strategic flaws of the conflict, the book embraces a larger scope: how the weak relationship between military strategy and national policy led to the Vietnam War's unpopular and faulty definition--and eventual failure. Particularly relevant today, this important expos ̌stresses the futility of any military action without the full support and involvement of the country's people

US military strategic options by Harry G Summers( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This memorandum examines the selection of US strategic military options, beginning with a discussion on the nature of the US military. Using the official definition of military strategy--i.e., 'employing the armed forces ... to secure the objectives of national policy'--the author draws a distinction between conduct of war and preparation for war, and provides a series of military planning interrogatories. These interrogatories, in the form of the classic principles of war, provide the questions the military planner must address to ensure that strategic planning options serve the interests of the United States.
