Washington DC: Naval Historical Center, Contemporary History Branch, 1991. Revised Edition. Wraps. , 100,  pages. Cover has some wear. Corners of several pages bent. This bibliography revises and updates A Select Bibliography of the United States Navy and the Southeast Asian Conflict, 1950-1975, compiled by Edward J. Marolda and G. Wesley Price III and issued in November 1983. The greater number of titles cited in this new edition reflects the outpouring of books and articles on the Vietnam War since 1983. In addition, because of the growing attention to the role of women in war, the current edition of the bibliography presents a new subject category entitled Navy Women. A primary object of this current work is to provide a bibliography that would enable researchers to identify the most comprehensive books and articles on the Navy's overall involvement in the struggle for Southeast Asia (hence the General Works section). Another goal was to present researchers only interested in specific subject areas with the fullest information on the sources treating those individual topics. The books, public documents, and articles cited in the bibliography can be found in the holding of the Navy Department Library.

Washington, DC: U. S. Government Printing Office, 1974. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. ix, , 284 pages. Footnotes. Diagram. Tables. Wraps. Cover has some wear and soiling. Minor printing marks noted on page 85. The Basic Principles of Operational Art and Tactics was translated and published under the auspices of the United States Air Force. The original Russian edition was published by the Military Publishing House of the Ministry of Defense in the USSR. The author, Colonel Vasiliy Yefisovich Savkin, has served on the faculty of the Frunze Military Academy. As a candidate of Military Science he has written several military affairs articles and authored at least two earlier books. He points out that the laws and principles are not the same and it is due to advances in science and technology that principles are constantly changing. According to Soviet military theorists, operational art and tactics are two of the three components of military art. The third is strategy. Operational art is the connecting link between strategy and tactics, and is called on to work out the theory and practice of preparing and conducting contemporary operations. This book, focusing on operational art and tactics, does not deal with either doctrine, which represents the official Soviet view of the nature of a future war, or strategy, since the most important aspect of strategy is policy. In U.S. terms the book treats operations, tactics, laws of war and laws of armed conflict. The author's views on the tactical use of nuclear weapons, the element of surprise, and other aspects of warfare are among the most challenging yet presented in Soviet military literature.
