    1. A quick read for a day you are wondering why the world is fighting guerilla style now As Mao Tse Tung predicted in this seminal text, the style of combat borne in China to repel foreign invaders would soon become the world s violent modus operandi Thus, it was essential to understand its proper utilization, as well as its limitations.Samuel B Griffith, USMC and translator of the text, puts it in a nutshell In the United States, we go to considerable trouble to keep soldiers out of politics, and [...]

    2. I suppose my background in studying strategy and tactics, and my enjoyment in such a subject, has determined a lot of what I gained from reading this For example, my multiple readings of Art of War, which Mao mentions multiple times in direct quote or allusion to, has enabled me to visualize a lot of what he says here I also like the way his writing was translated, the way it functions as a basic manual This book was short and educating, and my own writing on the subject of strategy and organiza [...]

    3. In 1937, Mao Tse tung wrote this manual on revolutionary guerrilla warfare during the Japanese invasion of China Chairman Mao would later become the founding father of the People s Republic of China.Mao writes, Guerrilla warfare has qualities and objectives peculiar to itself It is a weapon that a nation inferior in arms and military equipment may employ against a powerful aggressor nation He believed in the rights for the peasant people of China.Mao was born in the late 1800 s Fathered by a st [...]

    4. I believe armed struggles of the 21st century will be known for asymmetric warfare dictated by insurgencies rather than the total war characterized by 20th century where the entire economic and military might of a nation was mobilized to win These grassroots rebellions generally arise from the masses of unfortunate, uneducated, and forgotten poor seeking to improve their position in life and react with violent revolutionary action Mao knew and trusted the peasants and correctly gauged their rev [...]

    5. US Marine General Samuel B Griffith s translation and interpretation of Mao s slim little booklet on the strategy and use of guerrilla warfare is a true classic one that I would recommend anyone who is either interested in Chinese military history or ready for this one doing business in China or finds themselves competing with Chinese businesses elsewhere in the world I am still working through the use and implementation of Mao s strategies for business purposes but the deeper you get into the b [...]

    6. Like the art of war, this is a fascinating book into the mind of Mao On Guerrilla Warfare was written in the 1950 s and describes most of the tactics used by the Viet Kong to defeat the US during the Vietnam conflict It has a lot of applicability in the business world and actually in any group dynamic.It is also a study in strategy to exectuion.

    7. I can t believe I discovered this treasure in a Maryland antique store last week while visiting the Eastern Shore from Tennessee with my wife As a long time student of the Vietnam conflicts and Ho Chi Mihn, and to a lesser degree, Mao Tse Tung, I had heard of this classic guerrilla primer for some time, but I ve never been able to find it Until now In hardback And it was pricey But worth it.Mao wrote this small book in 1937 while leading the Chinese Red Army guerrillas against the Japanese invad [...]

    8. I think I enjoyed the commentary on Chairman Mao s writing than his own Overall a very potent little book that has helped inspire Guerrilla Warfare across the globe as the only viable option when faced with a larger, stronger and better equipped opponent The scary part is how effective it can be even against superior forces.My Favorite quotes IN the United States, we go to considerable trouble to keep soldiers out of politics, and even to keep politics out of soldiers Guerrillas do exactly the [...]

    9. Mao wrote this in 1937, when he was just a leader of the Chinese Communist Party, allied with Chiang Kai shek s Nationalists in a desperate war against the Japanese invaders Mao had not yet become the ideological mass murdering tyrant we know The book originally appeared as a pamphlet for the instruction of troops It is famous for its clear presentation of guerrilla methods, but I think its application is limited Mao is concerned specifically with partisan warfare, i.e guerrilla warfare by irreg [...]

    10. Mao s writing on guerilla warfare has become a guide on waging revolution in underdeveloped areas around the world Mao recognizes the difference between rural and urban societies to create strategies that create advantages for the lower class.In his writing, Mao highlights the signifigance of guerilla war as it creates areas for production, agriculture, and exploits the strengths and weaknesses of large armies and help guide the lower class in fighting them I agree with Mao Tse Tung on his views [...]

    11. This is the short text based on Mao s experiences fighting the Chinese Nationalists as well as preparing to fight the Imperial Japanese Army as it invaded the Chinese mainland Most people do think of Mao in line as Chairman Mao Take away what you think of him personally, he was a gifted military leaders with a keen mind This is valuable to read, especially his treatment of protracted war, very different than most traditional Western military theory It is also timely, as the United States fights [...]

    12. Mao s book is a classic on guerrilla warfare, ably translated and contextualized by General Samuel B Griffith This book mainly covers the theoretical and strategic aspects of guerrilla warfare, the need for complete political clarity at all levels, strict ethical codes and internal discipline for the men, and the proposed use of guerrillas against a qualitatively superior but numerically inferior force tasked with occupation and pacification This book won t teach you about how to set an ambush a [...]

    13. Taking Place during the second Sino Japanese War or commonly know as WW2, Mao Tse tung a brilliant general and future leader of China talks about the war efforts and what needs to be done concerning guerrilla warfare This book is base on Sun Tzu s war manual Art of War and the author expands it by talking about guerrilla operations and why they are necessary Over all this book is a great read in the right hands Mao Tse tung On Guerrilla Warfare is read almost like a manual, and takes a little s [...]

    14. It s not great writing, and it s not even particularly gripping stuff The translation is perhaps not the greatest, or perhaps Mao was not a literary genius.That said, it s an important read I found it recommended in Petraeus bibliography to his Counterinsurgency Field Manual as one of the classic texts on the subject It s short and easy to get through in one brief sitting, and it positively informs one s understanding of all recent insurgency fueled conflicts, including Algeria, Vietnam, and now [...]

    15. One of the best tactical looks at modern warfare out there, written by none other than the Chairman himself This handbook, or the concepts discussed therein, have been used by unconventional warriors of all types around the world to this day The lessons to be learned should be taken with a grain of salt, considering their source, though they are important concepts nonetheless, and many can be applied to conventional military thinking as well.


    17. Must read for anyone interested in unconventional warfare Mao set out his 3 phases establish a regional base, start direct action, then gain decision and victory Believed that in every disadvantage there is an advantage, and the converse.

    18. This is another book that I have returned to often over the years It taught me the basic construct that rebels, partisans, guerrillas, terrorists, etc use I think that it is no coincidence that Al Qaida translates to the base, a Mao concept.

    19. I think Mao Tse Tung basically played psychological side of human in the war Lesson learned I can take to be considered It should, feudal system be vanished and be not used any But, we still see that in many modern organizations use that system, ironically the organizations are within educational institution All students and teachers need to read this book, so they can take some values then implement it.

    20. Mao expertly explains in his careful, dialectical plain speech the organization, implementation, and philosophy of guerilla warfare to where it can easily be understood by anyone Its valuable also to get one of Mao s expert enemy s insights and perspectives on guerilla warfare The constant motion, initiative, adaptability, and fluidity of of guerilla warfare as theorized and practiced by Mao fits perfectly into Mao s dialectical materialism.

    21. Essential to understanding how Mao came to power The guerrilla must move amongst the people as a fish swims in the sea.

    22. Mr Mao writes in a clear, straightforward style I think he has a future in writing Perhaps of a little red book or something Really though, this is a straightforward and surprisingly practical book about waging guerrilla warfare against a traditional army Mao sets the context for a guerrilla army within that of a larger fighting force I enjoyed his insights.

    23. Much interesting than Che s I really only compare them because I read them back to back, but the scope of this one is just interesting overall.

    24. the first treatise on guerrilla warfare a must read for anyone in iraq afghanistan, involved with tactics or policy in any sort of battle against guerrillas.

    25. Interesting little study, you can also see where Clausewitz had influenced Mao here Essential reading for those wishing to understand warfare in the modern age.

    26. I am enjoying this book a lot The theory behind Gurrilla warfare is really solid This book has gets my wheels turning as to how to counter gurilla warfare.
