Print Print The following is a list of books I strongly recommend for studying modern war and warfare. Some deal directly with combat, some go beyond the bullets.
Some may not be conventional, but all deal directly with conflict. Makes you wonder where he is now? No one has ever done anything like this. It humanizes the enemy without excusing them. Partisans and Guerrillas By Ronald H. This guy could have been an Afghan given how brutally effective he was at small band guerilla tactics. Bruce: Thank God we had a president who was open to new ideas.
These are the Department of the Army manuals on booby-traps and unconventional killing methods. By themselves they are nothing special, but taken in the context, they are mind blowing. No, really, three pebbles, look it up. Carbine By Ross E. I see it as a reminder that innovation can be cultural as well as technical. Another study in cultural innovation and the courage it takes to embrace it.

He managed to fight a guerilla war, a conventional war, a political war and won on all fronts. In an alternative timeline, he should have been the commandant of our post-Vietnam counter-insurgency school.
S that Xi Jinping is making all his subjects read again. The Swords of Kirinyaga By H. Wachanga One of the most important accounts of a failed counterinsurgency. This is the story about how a natural occurrence, a volcano in far off Indonesia, can have social, economic, political and military consequences all around the world.
It needs to be front and center. Just read this book and imagine if, instead of some natural cause, the great Flu had been cooked up in a Lab?

If we all had that kind of intellectual-emotional flexibility, especially in wartime, we would be invincible Cold War Hot By Peter Tsouras: A book of alternative short stories. Like I said at my first talk, studying alternative history gets the creative muscles working.
If we imagine how the past might have been, we can better plan for how the future might be. The views expressed are those of the author and not necessarily those of West Point, the Department of the Army, the Department of Defense, or any agency of the US government.
