About the Book

The United States Marine Corps is the largest such force on the planet, and yet it is the smallest, most elite section of the U.S. military, one with a long and storied history. Here, in the most current version of the "Warfighting" manual used by the Corps itself, is an explanation of the philosophy that makes the Marine Corps unique. Warfighting covers the concepts and values behind how the Corps fights. Topics discussed include the definition of war, the science of war, the dynamics of war, styles of warfare, war as an act o policy, the philosophy of command, and more. Military buffs, war-gamers, and anyone seeking to understand the increasingly complicated global stage will find this a fascinating and informative document. Warfighting presents this philosophy for all Marines from the commandant to the lowest private in a clear and concise manner. All Marines are expected to read, and apply, this book. If you're into winning any sort of competition, not just warfare, Warfighting is an excellent book to read, concise and to the point. You can read it in a few hours and be forever changed by it.
About the Author: The United States Marine Corps (USMC) is a branch of the United States armed forces responsible for providing force projection from the sea, using the mobility of the United States Navy to rapidly deliver combined-arms task forces. It is one of seven uniformed services of the United States. In the civilian leadership structure of the United States military, the Marine Corps is a component of the Department of the Navy, often working closely with U.S. naval forces for training, transportation and logistic purposes; however, in the military leadership structure the Marine Corps is a separate branch. The United States Marine Corps is the smallest of the United States' armed forces in the Department of Defense (the United States Coast Guard is smaller, about one-fifth the size of the Marine Corps, but is normally under the Department of Homeland Security). The Marine Corps is nonetheless larger than the entire armed forces of many significant military powers; for example, it is larger than the active duty Israel Defense Forces or the whole of the British Army. The Marine Corps accounts for around six percent of the Military budget of the United States. The cost per Marine is $20,000 less than the cost of a serviceman from the other services, and the entire force can be used for both hybrid and major combat operations, that is, the Marines cover the entire Three Block War.
