Written in the 6th century BC, Sun Tzu’s The Art of War is still used as a book of military strategy today. Napoleon, Mae Zedong, General Vo Nguyen Giap and General Douglas MacArthur all claimed to have drawn inspiration from it. And beyond the world of war, business and management gurus have also applied Sun Tzu’s ideas to office politics and corporate strategy. Using a new translation by James Trapp and including editorial notes, this edition of The Art of War lays the original Chinese text opposite the modern English translation. The book contains the full original 13 chapters on such topics as laying plans, attacking by stratagem, weaponry, terrain and the use of spies. Sun Tzu addresses different campaign situations, marching, energy and how to exploit your enemy’s weaknesses. Of immense influence to great leaders across millennia, The Art of War is a classic text richly deserving this exquisite edition.

Captain Kolman (ret.), formerly of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, founder and first Director of the National Tactical Officers Association, and who authored one of the first SWAT textbooks in 1982, now brings forth a unique book that not only captures the substantive information required by new SWAT commanders but also its culture. Successful resolution of critical incidents is most often the result of basic concepts and principles implemented by knowledgeable, experienced and well-trained personnel under the direction of decisive leaders, but new SWAT commanders may not have benefited from coming through the ranks and SWAT pipeline and could be at a considerable disadvantage as they accept command. In a manner not previously used for SWAT education and training, Captain Kolman introduces the officer to substantive information, culture and a methodology to approach various missions. In doing so, the reader is led on an educational journey through a series of dreams that ultimately culminates in a fictitious SWAT Commander successfully resolving a high-risk incident. Each chapter builds on the previous one and allows the hypothetical characters passing through each chapter to evolve in knowledge, judgment and maturity. The book is a testimonial to the need for departments to provide or obtain contemporary, appropriate training for both command and operational personnel, so that working together they can effectively manage and resolve critical incidents with minimal risk to everyone involved. In addition to being a valuable asset to any SWAT school, including commanders, the seasoned operator will find this publication an entertaining and informative review.

An effective law enforcement response to critical incidents involving armed suspects can determine whether someone lives or dies. While law enforcement agencies train their personnel in the management of critical incidents, detailed studies regarding the creation of organizational conditions conducive to achieving desired outcomes are extremely limited. Drawing on personal experience and research, this book answers to the following questions: What organizational conditions impact the success or failure of global high-risk tactical operations and critical incidents? How can organizational conditions be developed to increase the likelihood of successful outcomes on these types of situations? This book analyzes six high-risk tactical operations: three successful and three unsuccessful missions. The case studies include incidents in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., Eureka, California, Manila, Philippines, Las Vegas, Nevada, Mauldin, South Carolina, and Silver Spring, Maryland. SWAT team deployment on high-risk operations is fundamentally a U.S. police concept that has been incorporated into foreign law enforcement agencies. Cultural differences can affect the implementation of pre-incident organizational conditions in foreign settings. Analysis of the U.A.E. and Philippines case studies include detailed discussions on how differing cultural practices and beliefs relate to organizational conditions. A qualitative analysis using a case study approach is conducted with a ?critical incident? as the main unit of analysis. Each incident is categorized into incident and pre-incident organizational conditions. Incident organizational conditions are conditions that are present on the day of a specific operation. They are categorized into the following areas: team structure and personnel assignments, individual behaviors, and equipment. Pre-incident conditions are examined beginning with the history of each SWAT team, and then continue with the team?s selection process, group development: command and team structure, frequency and type of training, and prescribed critical incident operational procedures. The results of this study identify the inextricable link between: leader skills, team performance, suspect actions, and organizational conditions. Well-defined organizational conditions prepare team members for a wide variety of missions, but also inculcate flexibility to adjust to ever-changing circumstances, thereby increasing a tactical team?s ability to achieve successful results.

Vice Adm. William H. McRaven helped to devise the strategy for how to bring down Osama bin Laden, and commanded the courageous U.S. military unit that carried it out on May 1, 2011, ending one of the greatest manhunts in history. In Spec Ops, a well-organized and deeply researched study, McRaven analyzes eight classic special operations. Six are from WWII: the German commando raid on the Belgian fort Eben Emael (1940); the Italian torpedo attack on the Alexandria harbor (1941); the British commando raid on Nazaire, France (1942); the German glider rescue of Benito Mussolini (1943); the British midget-submarine attack on the Tirpitz (1943); and the U.S. Ranger rescue mission at the Cabanatuan POW camp in the Philippines (1945). The two post-WWII examples are the U.S. Army raid on the Son Tay POW camp in North Vietnam (1970) and the Israeli rescue of the skyjacked hostages in Entebbe, Uganda (1976). McRaven—who commands a U.S. Navy SEAL team—pinpoints six essential principles of “spec ops” success: simplicity, security, repetition, surprise, speed and purpose. For each of the case studies, he provides political and military context, a meticulous reconstruction of the mission itself and an analysis of the operation in relation to his six principles. McRaven deems the Son Tay raid “the best modern example of a successful spec op [which] should be considered textbook material for future missions.” His own book is an instructive textbook that will be closely studied by students of the military arts.

In recent years, law enforcement has suffered a number of tactical fiascoes. Officers and agencies have been the subject of civil and criminal sanctions, public confidence has deteriorated and lives have been lost. Unlke most tactical books, which teach tactics as a "skill set," this book emphasizes an intuitive application of fundamental principles. These principles have evolved over centuries of tactical opeations and form a body of "sound doctrine." Heal not only presents a distillation of the more than ninety tactical texts, but provides an insightful and compelling call for rethinking tactics of law enforcement. Assuming no prior experience or understanding of tactical matters, Heal draws from everyday life such as competitive games, driving, or planning a vacation to show how to reconceptualize a difficult situation. Because of the fundamental concepts Heal explores apply to all types of emergencies, Sound Doctrine is suitable for not only law enforcement, but firefighters, private security, and other emergency responders.

This is my personal journey through one of the greatest warrior and leadership cultures of today, which ultimately provided me with defining leadership characteristics and the skills of a serious warrior. Nobody is born a great leader, they are made through hard work and determination. My first Indian name given to me by the medicine man when I was a child was Bobcat. As I grew and became a young man, I returned home from my first combat experience and was given my warrior's name, Evergreen Mountain. I am an American, first and foremost, but I am also a Pueblo and Yaqui Indian. I am a former member of the US Army's 18th Airborne Corps, 75th Ranger Regiment, and spent most of my career as an operational member of a Special Missions Unit under the United States Army Special Operations Command. These are some of my most important leadership lessons learned from the battlefield of the war on terror. It is my sincere hope that this book serves as a resource and a compass, providing direction and guidance for individuals seeking or in a leadership position.

"Major Jim Gant, a man seen by many of us as the 'perfect insurgent,'--an inspiring, gifted, courageous leader... -- GENERAL DAVID H. PETRAEUS (U.S. Army, Ret.) THE PAPER THAT ROCKED OSAMA BIN LADEN Team members during the May 2, 2011 U.S. military raid that killed Osama Bin Laden seized piles of Al Qaeda intelligence. One piece of evidence found in Bin Laden's personal sleeping quarters was an English language copy of Jim Gant's One Tribe at a Time. It contained notes in the margins consistent with others identified as written by Osama Bin Laden. A directive from Osama Bin Laden to his intelligence chief was also discovered. It identified Jim Gant by name as an impediment to Al Qaeda's operational objectives for eastern Afghanistan. Bin Laden ordered that Gant be assassinated. "[One Tribe at a Time] was hugely important...at a time when I was looking for ideas on Afghanistan...[Gant] was the first to write it down, in a very coherent fashion, very readable, very encouraging frankly...and there is enormous power in that." --General David H. Petraeus (U.S. Army, Ret.) quoted in American Spartan: The Promise, The Mission, and The Betrayal of Special Forces Major Jim Gant by Ann Scott Tyson Washington Post reporter Ann Scott Tyson read "One Tribe at a Time," and - informed by her combat experience in Afghanistan and Iraq and her eight years as a reporter in China - she realized that Jim's paper made sense. She decided to write a story about Jim entitled, "Jim Gant, the Green Beret who could win the war in Afghanistan." After the article appeared in January 2010, as Jim was in Washington, D.C., attending Pashto language training, he met Ann and the two fell in love. She followed his mission in Afghanistan and wrote AMERICAN SPARTAN: The Promise, the Mission, and the Betrayal of Special Forces Major Jim Gant.
