Leon Trotsky and the art of insurrection, 1905-1917 by Harold W Nelson( Book )

20 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leon Trotsky is usually studied from a political perspective, and only occasionally as a military leader. This study combines those viewpoints to analyse the ways in which Trotsky attempted to use military means to gain the revolution's initial objectives. Trotsky's theories on the revolutionary use of violence are examined in some detail and are placed within the context of the theoretical debate among members of the Russian Left in the period between the abortive revolution of 1905 and the events of 1917. The maturation of Trotsky's views on military affairs is traced through his columns as a war correspondent covering the Balkan Wars and World War I. The picture that emerges is complex. Trotsky realized that confrontation with the army would inevitably play a part in the progress toward revolutionary victory. But he recognized the power of modern weapons in the hands of disciplined troops and sought tactics that would ensure success. He perfected those tactics in the summer of 1917, and the victory of the October Revolution demonstrated the utility of his tactics. By combining an armed revolutionary cadre with enthusiastic masses while reducing the strength and discipline of the army through propaganda, Trotsky tipped the balance of violence to favour the revolution. -- Back cover

Guide to the Atlanta campaign : Rocky Face Ridge to Kennesaw Mountain( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following William T. Sherman's capture of Chattanooga, the Union Army initiated a series of battles and operations that took it from the Tennessee border to the outskirts of Atlanta, with bloody confrontations at places such as Resaca and New Hope Church. Grant had ordered Sherman to penetrate the enemy's interior and inflict "all the damage you can against their War resources," and from the first major engagement at Rocky Face Ridge to the bitter standoff at Kennesaw Mountain, Sherman proceeded to do just that. This latest in the Army War College Guides to Civil War Battles offers a concise and easy-to-use introduction to Sherman's route, focusing on this first and most critical phase of the Atlanta campaign. It leads visitors to all of the pertinent sites: Dug Gap, Adairsville, Pickett's Mill, etc. The authors show respect for both sides of the fighting, but especially convey Sherman's special genius in mastering the logistical challenges that confronted him, moving reinforcements and supplies, and directing diverse offensive actions over immense--and immensely hostile--territory
Guide to the Battles of Chancellorsville & Fredericksburg( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unknown future and a doubtful present : writing the victory plan of 1941 by Charles Edward Kirkpatrick( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unknown future and a doubtful present: writing the victory plan of 1941 covers the work of then Maj. Albert C. Wedemeyer, the principal author of the Victory Plan. In just forty-eight months America raised and equipped a modern army seemingly overnight, a feat that owed much to sound military planning. As Wedemeyer makes clear, mobilization transcends purely military matters and must be understood to embrace the capacity of nations. His work underscores the fact that even in 1941 warfare had become so vast in scope, so expensive, and so technologically complex that nations could never again afford to maintain in time of peace the armies needed in time of war. The conclusion seems inescapable: The United States Army must keep mobilization planning at the center of all its military planning. Military planners and all those studying mobilization and logistics will benefit from processes Wedemeyer and his colleagues used in reaching their decisions on the units and material needed. The Victory Plan provides a clear picture of how they approached the challenge of preparing for modern war
