€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A Scientific Way of War analyzes how the doctrine of military science evolved from teaching specific Napoleonic applications to embracing subjects that were useful for war in North America. Drawing from a wide array of materials, Ian C. Hope refutes earlier charges of a lack of professionalization in the antebellum American army and an overreliance on the teachings of Swiss military theorist Antoine de Jomini. Instead, Hope shows that inculcation in West Point´s American military curriculum eventually came to provide the army with an officer corps that shared a common doctrine and common skill in military problem solving. The proliferation of military science ensured that on the eve of the Civil War there existed a distinctly American, and scientific, way of war. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin F Spalding.

Fort Laramie: Military Bastion of the High Plai...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Of all the US Army posts in the West, none witnessed more history than Fort Laramie, positioned in the northern Great Plains join the Rocky Mountains. From its beginnings as a trading post in 1834 to its abandonment by the army in 1890, it was involved in the buffalo hide trade, overland migrations, Indian wars and treaties, the Utah War, Confederate maneuvering, and the coming of the telegraph and first transcontinental railroad. Douglas C. McChristian has written the first complete history of Fort Laramie, chronicling every critical stage in its existence, including its addition to the National Park System. He draws on an extraordinary array of archival materials — including those at Fort Laramie National Historic Site — to present new data about the fort and new interpretations of historical events. Emphasizing the fort´s military history, McChristian documents the army´s vital role in ending challenges posed by American Indians to US occupation and settlement of the region, and he expands on the fort´s interactions with the many Native peoples of the Central Plains and Rocky Mountains. He provides a particularly lucid description of the infamous Grattan fight of 1854, which initiated a generation of strife between Indians and US soldiers, and he recounts the 1851 Horse Creek and 1868 Fort Laramie treaties. Meticulously researched and gracefully told, this is a long-overdue military history of one of the American West´s most venerable historic places. The book is published by University of Oklahoma Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Utley. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/100389/bk_acx0_100389_sample.mp3.

The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China , ...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Finally available in paperback, Ralph D. Sawyer´s incomparable study of ancient Chinese warfare.One of the most profound studies of warfare ever written, The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China presents us with an Eastern tradition of strategic thought that emphasizes outwitting one´s opponent through speed, stealth, flexibility, and a minimum of force - an approach very different from that stressed in the West, where the advantages of brute strength have overshadowed more subtle methods.Safeguarded for centuries by the ruling elites of imperial China, even in modern times, these writings have been known to only a handful of Western specialists. In this volume are seven separate essays, written between 500 B.C. and A.D. 700, that preserve the essential tenets of strategy distilled from the experience of the most brilliant warriors of ancient China. This accurate translation remedies a serious gap in Western knowledge of Asian thought. Based on the best available classical Chinese manuscripts, some only recently discovered by archaeologists, The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China is a uniquely important contribution to the world´s military literature and is essential reading for anyone interested in China´s rich cultural heritage or in the timeless principles of successful warfare strategy. 1.

Some fairy tales start after midnight. The crown prince and I have nothing in common. He´s a rugged, battle-hardened soldier who spent four years in the Royal Guard, an elite military unit. I met the king and queen for the first time wearing leggings and a sweatshirt. But there´s the way he looks at me. Like he knows every dirty thought I´ve had about him - and he likes them. There´s the way my pulse skyrockets every time his hand brushes mine. I´m the ambassador´s daughter. I know better than to mess around with a foreign head of state. But I don´t know how long I can resist. Not all princes are charming. I spent years in the Royal Guard, our most elite military unit, fighting like hell so I could rule one day - not so I could give my father an heir with some well-bred rich girl. I have a f--king country to run. My love life can take a back seat. It´s not like I´ve ever met a girl I had to have - until her. I can´t stop thinking about the way she laughs, about how she might taste. My father´s threatening to strip me of my title if I touch her, but she makes me want to break every one of my own rules. Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lidia Dornet, Will Thorne. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/007079/bk_tant_007079_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Imperial Grunts: The American Military on the G...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this landmark book, Robert D. Kaplan, veteran correspondent for The Atlantic Monthly and author of Balkan Ghosts, shows how American imperialism and the Global War on Terrorism are implemented on the ground, mission by mission, in the most exotic landscapes around the world. Given unprecedented access, Kaplan takes us from the jungles of the southern Philippines to the glacial dust bowls of Mongolia, from the forts of Afghanistan to the forests of South America, not to mention Iraq, to show us Army Special Forces, Marines, and other uniformed Americans carrying out the many facets of U.S. foreign policy: negotiating with tribal factions, storming terrorist redoubts, performing humanitarian missions, and training foreign soldiers. In Imperial Grunts, Kaplan provides an unforgettable insider´s account not only of our current involvement in world affairs, but also of where America, including the culture of its officers and enlisted men, is headed. This is the rare book that has the potential to change the way readers view the men and women of the military, war, and the global reach of American imperialism today. Never before has America´s overarching military strategy been parsed so incisively and evocatively. Kaplan introduces us to lone American servicemen whose presence in obscure countries is largely unknown, and concludes with a heart-stopping portrait of marines in the first battle in Fallujah. Extraordinary in its scope, beautifully written, Imperial Grunts combines first-rate reporting with the sensitivity and insights of an acclaimed writer steeped in history, literature, and philosophy, to deliver a masterly account of America´s global role in the twenty-first century. 1.
