Tarzan of the apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs( )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a ship's mutiny forces a young noble English couple out onto the remote African coast, their child is born into the wild. Their deaths a short time later leave the boy alone in the jungle wilderness-until a she-ape adopts him and raises him as her own. Reluctantly accepted into the tribe by its fierce leader, Kerchak, the baby Tarzan must prove himself by learning the ways of survival in the jungle: how to talk with animals, swing through the trees, and fight the great predators. In time, his strength, courage, and human intelligence earn him a place as Lord of the Jungle. But when civilized men enter the jungle, Tarzan is forced to choose between two worlds. Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic tale is both a reflection on civilization from an outside point of view and an exploration of the primal force within us all
How great generals win by Bevin Alexander( )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history, great generals have done what their enemies have least expected. Instead of direct, predictable attack, they have deceived, encircled, outflanked, out-thought, and triumphed over often superior armies commanded by conventional thinkers. Collected here are the stories of the most successful commanders of all time, including Hannibal, Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Stonewall Jackson, Sherman, Rommel, Mao Zedong. Each has demonstrated, at his own point in history, the strategic and tactical genius essential for victory. Ironically this virtue does not come naturally to military organizations, since more often than not, the straight-ahead, narrow-thinking soldier will be promoted over his more lateral-minded, devious counterpart. Yet when the latter gains control, the results may be spectacular
At the Earth's core by Edgar Rice Burroughs( )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They found themselves in a prehistoric land--thousands of miles underground. When David Innes and his inventor friend pierced the crust of the Earth in their new burrowing device, they broke out into a strange new inner world of eternal daylight--a world in back of the Stone Age, where prehistoric monsters still lived, and cave men and women battled against cruel, inhuman masters. This is the story of what these two men did in that new world of Pellucidar
