Battle ready by Tom Clancy( Book )

29 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 2,870 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

A military for the 21st century : lessons from the recent past by Anthony C Zinni( )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The post-Cold War world environment has complicated rather than simplified the missions, strategy, and organization of the Armed Forces. Rapid downsizing after the fall of the Soviet Union and the Allied victory in the Persian Gulf War left a military lacking strategic direction. a thoughtful force structure, and a logical threat upon which to base future force structure. This environment will not permit the luxury of a strategic pause. Allowing the new world order to arrange itself could present the Nation with an unforeseen threat that it cannot handle. To prevent such an eventuality, the military must address several challenges: the number of nontraditional threats, financing a military capable of meeting all the potential challenges it may face, the need to reform itself to handle rapid developments in technology, and interagency reform in coordination with military reform so that the full weight of national power can be brought to bear against adversaries. A deliberate process of military transformation must account for the need for public

Global warrior : averting WWIII by H. J Poole( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book sports a counter-cultural cover, because "U.S. combat as usual" is not getting the job done. It may carefully preserve American life, but it is still losing the wars. What the Pentagon needs in Afghanistan is some true light infantrymen (in the Asian tradition). Even its special operators lack the light-infantry assault, defense, and hiding skills to make them a force multiplier. With WWIII in the offing, that all must change. Contrary to the arms manufacturers' claims, light infantry can hold its own in conventional battle with an acceptable level of casualties. It can also be combined with remotely controlled tank killing and any number of other technological marvels. Contained herein are ways for the U.S. squad to rebuild the element of surprise during an attack and new skill sets for its riflemen. Also is the best intell. brief on Pakistan's internal struggles currently available
Before the first shots are fired : how America can win or lose off the battlefield by Tony Koltz( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 42 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

Guardian Joe : how less force helps the warrior by H. J Poole( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Needless to say, the average American rifleman might do quite well with a more productive combat role. In truth, his is the most complicated of all military fields. So, only required would be for his unit to better acknowledge the extra warrior potential. That potential goes far beyond marksmanship, endurance, and following orders ... this book's ultimate objective is to make all Pentagon infantrymen and special operators so proficient at ground combat that America easily fulfills its providential duty of saving the world. Contrary to popular opinion, real combat proficiently has more to do with compassion and initiative, than savagery and obedience. Those who would claim otherwise may have become overly enamored with top-echelon power or defense contract money. There is more to be gained on future battlefields from decentralizing control over infantry training and operations than from all the latest surveillance, targeting, and remote-killing devices put together. Most U.S. military books are written by high-ranking retired officers. From a loyalty-demanding and strategy-oriented background, they routinely draw upon 'conventional wisdom' to show how better to conduct a war from the top down. Such an endeavor takes no illustrations, small-unit vignettes, or footnotes. For the recent inductee trying to learn more about his or her military specialty, it proves too philosophical to be of much use (or interest). To further jeopardize their quest, some well-intended editor has also removed most of the 'how-to' detail. Guardian Joe is not like that. It has been written by someone with 30 years as a squad tactics instructor, after 20 as a commissioned infantryman. An 11-year 'reversion to enlisted status' gave this retired Marine some unique insights into why the Pentagon has had so much trouble winning wars of late. So, after briefly discussing the U.S. infantry commander's wartime perspective, he shows which skills his enlisted subordinates must have to follow the full modern-day intent of their instructions. For company grade officers responsible for their troops' success/survival in war, it offers a rare glimpse into irregular warfare. For those troops themselves, it is the 'first ever' manual on how to maximize both pride and longevity in combat. Largely responsible for the U.S. Marines' victory over the tactically superior Japanese in WWII was the edge a survival-oriented combatant has over one wishing a glorious death. The same 'mindset differential' has recently helped modern-day Government Issues (GIs) to persevere over the minions of radical Islam. But, for most American service personnel, just surviving a long time is not enough. Their ultimate objective is to make some meaningful contribution along the way"--Preface
