The art of war by Sunzi ( Book )
51 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in English and held by 2,575 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 )
17 editions published between 1963 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,105 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

25 editions published between 1972 and 2008 in French and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ce court traité dégage les principes de la poursuite intelligente d'une guerre victorieuse. L'auteur, qui a exercé une influence considérable sur les traditions militaires chinoises et japonaises, accorde au facteur moral et intellectuel la première place. La stratégie est faite d'une économie de moyens matériels fondée sur la connaissance profonde de l'ennemi, puis du terrain et de l'organisation des approvisionnements. Le dernier disciple de Sun Tzu s'appelait... Mao Tsé-toung. [SDM]

This ancient Chinese military treatise is a classic work of nonfiction that is still widely read for its military insights. For more than two thousand years, The Art of War has stood as a cornerstone of Chinese culture, a lucid text that reveals as much about psychology, politics, and economics as it does about battlefield strategy.

The definitive work on military strategy and tactics of its time, The Art of War remains relevant to this day, making it the oldest and most successful book on the subject
