Readings on Maneuver Warfare

by Capt G.K. Cunningham

You name 7 of the 11 recommended books on maneuver warfare [see Books in Nov81 and Dec81 GAZETTES]. What are the other four?

>>>Editors Note:

The four that were omitted from the list are:

Lost Victories. By FM Erick von Manstein. Henry Regnery Co., Chicago, 1958.

Infantry in Battle. Ed. by Col G. C. Marshall, USA. Infantry Journal, Washington, D.C., 1939.

Attack. By Ferdinand O. Miksche. Random House, New York, 1942.

Stonewall in the Valley: Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson’s Shenandoah Valley Campaign, Spring, 1862. By Robert G. Tanner. Doubleday, Garden City, N.J., 1976. $13.95.

The first three of these are out of print, but we have good news about two of them. Lost Victories is scheduled to be reprinted in May by Presidio Press and will have a new introduction by Martin Blumenson. Infantry in Battle is being reprinted by the Marine Corps Association and will also be available this spring. MajGen A.M. Gray, Jr., commanding general of the 2d Marine Division, has agreed to write a new foreword.

When we published the original list we thought Tanner’s book was also out of print, but it is still available through Doubleday.
