The first documented, systematic study of guerrilla warfare, this 1937 text remains the definitive guide to orchestrating revolution in developing countries. Based on Mao's own experiences and his interpretations of the classic strategies of Sun-tzu, "On Guerrilla Warfare concisely explains why guerrilla activities should be integrated into conventional military activities and discusses the organization and operation of guerrilla units. Its unorthodox strategies transform disadvantages into benefits: using retreat as an offensive maneuver; indoctrinating locals for employment as spies; and compensating for lack of firepower with speed, surprise, and initiative. Translator Samuel B. Griffith provides a comprehensive introduction in which he profiles Mao, examines the nature and conduct of guerrilla warfare, and considers the practice's implications for American policy.
