Not only for Marine officers and enlisted personnel, Warfighting is a classic text on the level of Sun Tzu and Clausewitz: a must-read for anyone engaged in any competitive activity - whether business, sport, law enforcement or any avenue of human endeavor where meeting your goals, defeating the opposition, and emerging victorious are primary concerns.

The USMC’s capstone publication, Warfighting is incisive, concise, and designed to be easily read cover-to-cover. It is intended to provide the reader, whether military or civilian, with a crystal-clear grasp of the nature of human conflict and the tools with which to fight, overcome and triumph against the odds.

Warfighting is not just a manual, it contains a tried and proven philosophy of action that dictates the warrior's every choice and deed in war, in crisis, and in peace.

"The best single-volume introduction to the art and science of warfare this reviewer has ever had the pleasure of reading." - defenceWEB

INTRODUCTION

Very simply, this publication describes the philosophy which distinguishes the U.S. Marine Corps. The thoughts contained here are not merely guidance for action in combat but a way of thinking. This publication provides the authoritative basis for how we fight and how we prepare to fight.

Warfighting is not meant as a reference manual; it is designed to be read from cover to cover. Experience has shown that the warfighting philosophy described on these pages applies far beyond the officer corps. I expect all Marines — enlisted and commissioned — to read this book, understand it, and act upon it.

C. C. KRULAK - General, U.S. Marine Corps, Commandant of the Marine Corps
