Baker & Taylor Originally written as a philosophical and strategic guidebook for the U.S. Marine Corps, this practical guidebook describes the basic forces at work in any competitive situation and explains how to utilize the art of maneuver warfare to succeed at war, business, or daily life.
Blackwell North Amer Great warfighting classics from Asia have long guided the actions of business people caught in the crossfire of competition and conflict. But these manuals - among them Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Musashi's The Book of Five Rings - urge secrecy, subtlety, patience. In tough times like these, that just isn't enough. Warfighting shows how to use the Marine Corps's battle strategies of strength and straightforwardness to manage your way to victory in every confrontation, whether at a corporate, departmental, or personal level. Marines are masters of the art of maneuver warfare where small teams overwhelm the brute strength and large numbers of traditional forces. They have perfected tactics that manipulate the basic elements of conflict - speed, surprise, disorder, intuition, and moral confusion - to throw the opposition into chaos and disarray. Their advice shows how to achieve the spiritual and mental discipline that mark the warrior's state of mind, born of bold will, intellect, initiative, and ruthless opportunism. Warfighting inspires leaders who understand that "courage is not the absence of fear, but the strength to overcome it."
