On war by Carl von Clausewitz ( )
57 editions published between 1832 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Carl von Clausewitz's theories of war have influenced generations of military leaders and policy makers throughout the Western world. On War is widely regarded as Clausewitz's premier work on the philosophy of war and the first modern book of military strategy. The work is controversial -- Clausewitz's argument that war cannot be waged in a limited way has been blamed for the massive casualties in World Wars I and II -- yet it remains required reading at many military academies. Its enduring relevance can be explained by Clausewitz's recognition that while political leaders are not military experts, "a certain grasp of military affairs is vital for those in charge of general policy." He also emphasized social and economic issues as some of the most important factors in deciding the outcomes of wars. Clausewitz described a "remarkable trinity," consisting of "the people, the commanders and their army, and the government." The interplay among these three parts determines the nature, conduct, and purpose of war." --P. [4] of cover

A Prussian soldier and writer, Clausewitz is said to have distilled Napoleon into theory.

Ballute Stabilization System for M-118 Bomb ( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A drag-stabilization system utilizing a ram-air inflatable BALLUTE was considered for compatible application to the operational M-118 bomb where use of the conventional M-135 fin assembly is physically prohibitive. Wind-tunnel tests of 1/10-scale models were conducted and the results were analyzed to determine a stable BALLUTE size and configuration. A positive operating mechanism was designed to ensure consistent deployment of ram-air scoops for initiating the BALLUTE inflation. Stress and reliability analyses were performed to support the design effort, and the first prototype was vibration tested to prepare the system hardware for Air Force flight testing. Several fabricated units were recommended for intended bomb drops to enable evaluation of the concept. (Author)
