Most widely held works by Tony Koltz
Battle ready by Tom Clancy( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and Czech and held by 2,898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his first three Commanders books, Tom Clancy teamed with Generals Fred Franks, Jr., Chuck Horner, and Carl Stiner to provide masterful blends of history, biography, you-are-there narrative, insight into the practice of leadership, and plain, old-fashioned storytelling. Battle Ready is all of that--and it is also something more. Marine General Tony Zinni was known as the "Warrior Diplomat" during his nearly forty years of service. As a soldier, his credentials were impeccable, whether leading troops in Vietnam, commanding hair-raising rescue operations in Somalia, or as Commander in Chief of CENTCOM directing strikes against Iraq and Al Qaeda. But it was as a peacemaker that he made just as great a mark, conducting dangerous troubleshooting missions all over Africa, Asia, and Europe; and then serving as Secretary of State Colin Powell's special envoy to the Middle East, before disagreements over the 2003 Iraq War and its probable aftermath caused him to resign. Battle Ready follows the evolution of both General Zinni and the Marine Corps, from the cauldron of Vietnam through the operational revolution of the seventies and eighties, to the new realities of the post-Cold War, post-9/11 military, a military with a radically different job and radically different tools for accomplishing it. It is an eye-opening book, a front-row seat to a man, an institution, and a way of both war and peace that together make this an instant classic of military history.--Publisher description

Before the first shots are fired : how America can win or lose off the battlefield by Anthony C Zinni( Recording )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the better part of the last half century, the United States has been the world's police, claiming to defend ideologies, allies, and our national security through brute force. But is military action always the most appropriate response? Drawing on his vast experience, retired four-star general Tony Zinni argues that we have a lot of work to do to make the process of going to war-or not-more clear-eyed and ultimately successful. He examines the relationship between the executive and the military; the challenges of working with the UN, coalition forces, and NATO; and the difficult choices that need to be made to create tomorrow's military. Among his provocative points:Virtually every recent American military operation follows a disconnected series of actions that lead to outcomes we never foresaw or intended. We need to assign accountability for the political decisions that can make or break a mission. Words and ideas are as important to victory in today's conflicts as bullets. From the Oval Office to the battlefield, Before the First Shots Are Fired is a hard-hitting analysis of the history of America's use of military action and a spirited call for change
