The U.S. Army/Marine Corps counterinsurgency field manual : U.S. Army field manual no. 3-24 : Marine Corps warfighting publication no. 3-33.5 by United States( Book )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 718 libraries worldwide
When the U.S. military invaded Iraq, it lacked a common understanding of the problems inherent in counterinsurgency campaigns. It had neither studied them, nor developed doctrine and tactics to deal with them. It is fair to say that in 2003, most Army officers knew more about the U.S. Civil War than they did about counterinsurgency. The U.S. Army / Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual was written to fill that void. The result of unprecedented collaboration among top U.S. military experts, scholars, and practitioners in the field, the manual espouses an approach to combat that emphasizes

Marine aviation in the Philippines by United States( Book )
4 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 586 libraries worldwide
Contains 58 photos and 10 maps and charts."The return of Allied forces to the Philippines in the fall of 1944 further throttled Japan's already tenuous pipe line to the rich resources of Malaya and the Netherlands Indies, and with it the last vestige of her ability to meet the logistical requirements of a continuing war. The Battle for Leyte Gulf marked the end of Japan as a naval power, forcing her to adopt the desperation kamikaze tactic against the United States Fleets. The Philippine victories were primarily Army and Navy operations. Marines, comprising only a fraction of the total forces engaged, played a secondary but significant role in the overall victory. The campaign was important to the Corps in that the Marine aviators, who had battled two years for air control over the Solomons, moved into a new role, their first opportunity to test on a large scale the fundamental Marine doctrine of close air support for ground troops in conventional land operations. This test they passed with credit, and Marine flyers contributed materially to the Philippine victory. Lessons learned and techniques perfected in those campaigns form an important chapter in our present-day close air support doctrines." ⁰́₃C. B. Cates, General, U.S. Marine Corps, Commandant of the Marine Corps

Originally published in 1940 by the U.S. Marine Corps, Small Wars Manual examines the practical and philosophical aspects of low-intensity conflicts, which were then referred to as Small Wars. It is one of the best books on military peacekeeping and counterinsurgency operations ever written. To read this book today is to look back on a critical era in American history, and to see a blueprint?through military strategy and policy?for the United States? current operations abroad. Topics covered include strategy, psychology, dealings with foreign civilians, as well as implementation of a democratically-elected government.
