ABOUT THIS BOOK:
In 1937, Mao Tse-tung, in retreat after ten years of battling the Nationalist troops of Chiang Kai-shek, wrote a succinct pamphlet that has become one of the most influential doc uments of our time. This treatise, the first systematic analysis of guerrilla warfare, established Mao as the architect of a new method of warfare. Within the last two decades, Mao’s study has become the basic textbook for waging Communist revolutionary warfare in underdeveloped and emergent areas throughout the world. It provided the strategy for Ho Chi Minh’s protracted campaigns in Indochina and for Castro’s successful Cuban revolution.(Publisher). Good / good. Item #10513
