The art of war by Sunzi( Book )

54 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in China more than 2,000 years ago, Sun Tzu's classic The Art of War is the first known study of the planning and conduct of military operations. These terse, aphoristic essays are unsurpassed in comprehensiveness and depth of understanding, examining not only battlefield maneuvers, but also relevant economic, political, and psychological factors. Indeed, the precepts outlined by Sun Tzu can be applied outside the realm of military theory. It is read avidly by Japanese businessmen and in fact was touted in the movie Wall Street as the corporate raider's bible. In addition to an excellent translation of Sun Tzu's text, Samuel Griffith also provides commentaries written by Chinese strategists, plus several thought-provoking essays on topics such as the influence of Sun Tzu on Mao Tse-tung and on Japanese military thought, the nature of warfare in Sun Tzu's time, and the life of Sun Tzu and other important commentators. Remarkable for its clear organization, lucid prose, and the acuity of its intellectual and moral insights, The Art of War is the definitive study of combat

The battle for Guadalcanal by Samuel B Griffith( Book )

21 editions published between 1963 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Masterful pacing, vivid character sketches, and gripping action blend with rigorous historical detail in Samuel B. Griffith's The Battle for Guadalcanal. Launched on August 7, 1942, to protect Allied control of the strategic South Pacific islands, the Guadalcanal operation was the most costly American offensive in the history of the U.S. Navy up to that time. Griffith, who fought with Edson's Raiders on Guadalcanal, describes in gritty detail the vicious close-range fighting, the valiant defense of the Henderson Field airstrip, and the dramatic naval engagements that led, in February 1943, to an American victory. Drawing on American and Japanese sources, Griffith delineates the strategic decisions that shaped the conflict as well as the determination and endurance of combatants on both sides. A breathtaking narrative of military action anchored by a historian's objectivity, The Battle for Guadalcanal is a story of raw courage, desperate measures, and ultimate triumph

L'art de la guerre by Zi Sun( Book )

9 editions published between 1972 and 2017 in French and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Point de vue de l'éditeur: Il y a vingt-cinq siècles, dans la Chine des " Royaumes combattants ", était rédigé le premier traité sur " l'art de la guerre ". Sur son auteur, Sun Tzu, l'histoire ne fournit que quelques traits biographiques et peut-être sont-ils mêlés de légende. Mais son ouvrage, d'une concision admirable et toujours perceptible malgré les adjonctions des commentateurs, a été et demeure au centre de la pensée militaire d'Extrême-Orient. A la différence de Clausewitz, Sun Tzu ne fait pas de la grandiose bataille d'anéantissement le sommet de l'art du stratège. Si l'on peut détruire l'ennemi, on se jette sur lui ; mais la " duperie ", c'est-à-dire la guerre totale du mensonge, peut faire mieux encore... Il faut lire Sun Tzu comme un grand classique empreint de sagesse, mais aussi comme la clé d'une meilleure compréhension de la pensée politique chinoise d'aujourd'hui

Sun Tzu. The art of war. Study of planning and conduct of military operations
On guerrilla warfare by Zedong Mao( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first documented, systematic study of guerrilla warfare, Mao Tse-tung's 1937 text remains the definitive guide to orchestrating revolution in developing countries. Based on Mao's own experiences in fighting Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists and his interpretations of the classic strategies of Sun-tzu, On Guerrilla Warfare outlines the tactics that have proven effective around the world, from Vietnamese jungles to Middle Eastern deserts. Prescient in his thinking and concise in his expression, Mao conceived of guerrilla operations as a complement to traditional warfare. He explains why guerrilla activities should be integrated into conventional military procedures and discusses the organization and operation of guerrilla units. His unorthodox strategies transform disadvantages into benefits: using retreat as an offensive maneuver; indoctrinating locals for employment as spies; and compensating for lack of firepower with speed, surprise, and initiative
El arte de la guerra by Sunzi( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in Spanish and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El pensamiento del general chino Sun Tzu ha influido en la obra de Maquiavelo, fue decisivo en los planes militares de Napoleón, modeló las ideas políticas de Mao Tse Tung y se apoya en estos dos preceptos: Todo el arte de la guerra se basa en el engaño. Y el supremo arte de la guerra es someter al enemigo sin luchar. Es el mejor libro de estrategia que se ha escrito, porque es el único que establece pautas para alcanzar soluciones pacíficas a los conflictos. "Es exitoso el que alcanza las metas que se fija, sin devastar ni avasallar, el que elabora una táctica para conseguirlo, aprovecha su oportunidad, acepta sus debilidades y reconoce sus fortalezas."--
