Product picture for 4th Generation Warfare Handbook by William S. Lind
Book › Paperback
Written by the author of the Maneuver Warfare Handbook and an active-duty USMC officer with experience in Iraq, 4th Generation Warfare Handbook is the doctrine for a new generation of war. Over the last 40 years, the world has gradually entered into a post-Clausewitzian state where the wars are undeclared, the battlefields can be anywhere, the uniforms are optional, and the combatants as well as the targets are often "civilian". Conventional militaries have repeatedly attempted to utilize...
Book cover from Maneuver Warfare Handbook (WESTVIEW SPECIAL STUDIES IN MILITARY AFFAIRS) by William S Lind
Book › Paperback
Maneuver warfare, often controversial and requiring operational and tactical innovation, poses perhaps the most important doctrinal questions currently facing the conventional military forces of the U.S. Its purpose is to defeat the enemy by disrupting the opponent's ability to react, rather than by physical destruction of forces. This book develops and explains the theory of maneuver warfare and offers specific tactical, operational, and organizational recommendations for improving ground...
Book cover from Phantom Soldier: The Enemys Answer to U.S. Firepower by H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
"Phantom Soldier" is now on the U.S. Army's most prestigious pre-deployment reading list for a reason.

Book cover from Food and the Mid-Level Farm: Renewing an Agriculture of the Middle (Food, Health, and the Environment) by William S. Lind
Book › Paperback
Practitioners and scholars from a range of disciplines discuss how midsize farms can better connect with consumers, organize collectively to develop markets for their products, and promote public policies that address agriculture-of-the-middle issues.

Agriculture in the United States today increasingly operates in two separate spheres: large, corporate-connected commodity production and distribution systems and small-scale farms that market directly to consumers. As a result, midsize...
Book cover from One More Bridge to Cross: Lowering the Cost of War by H. John Poole
Book › Paperback
Without "boots on the ground" that are tactically proficient enough to survive as tiny well-dispersed elements without any help from supporting arms, America should not plan to win any more wars. This book shows how the Pentagon could--with some "truly light" infantrymen and more self-sufficient commandos--project more overseas power at less cost in money and lives. Since Korea, America's foes haven't needed as much preparatory fire or technology, nor have they caused as much collateral...
