9 editions published between 1932 and 1983 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
"Although Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett were more celebrated, Buck Barry did as much or more to tame the Old Southwest. During a long and useful life he was a professional soldier, stock farmer, sheriff, and member of the legislature. His memoirs are never dull, and no wonder. In 1845 young James Buckner Barry joined the newly formed Texas Rangers and for the next twenty years his life was one of unremitting activity and danger. These pages show him fighting outlaws and Indians from the Red River to the Rio Grande. He served in the Mexican and Civil wars, coming out as a lieutenant colonel. Then he confronted the daily perils of ranching in Bosque County, Texas. Peace officer, legislator, "he served his people well even to the neglect of his private advantage." Such is the tribute of the historian James K. Greer, who edited Buck Barry's private papers and reminiscences and shaped them into this book."-Print ed

The outline of history : being a plain history of life and mankind by H. G Wells( Book )
1 edition published in 1929 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Herbert George Wells is perhaps most well known today for his science-fiction novels but it was "The Outline of History" that initiated a new era of popular history. Although the harshest critics were from those who disagreed on ideological grounds, it's difficult to dismiss the depth of Wells' insights and prophetic accuracy. E.M. Forster and Beatrice Webb both praised the book on publication. It was this very book to which G.K. Chesterton responds in "The Everlasting Man" as does Hilaire Bellock in "A Companion to Mr. Wells's "Outline of History." "In re-living the entire life of Mankind as a single imaginative experience, Mr. Wells was achieving something which they themselves would hardly have dared to attempt ... In fact, the purpose and value of Mr. Wells's book seem to have been better appreciated by the general public than by the professional historians of the day

Operational art in a multi-medium environment : a monograph by James K Greer( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This monograph examines the conduct of war at the operational level in a multi-medium environment to determine what functions must be successfully accomplished in order to win. The monograph is based on the fact that warfare is currently conducted in at least six mediums: land, sea, air, psychological, space, and electro-optical. The first portion of the monograph develops the multi-medium environment in which the operational art is conducted. It then uses the history of campaigns since 1940 to determine the attributes of warfare in the multi-medium environment. Those attributes are synergism, flexibility, precision, and elasticity. The separate theories of war that apply to each medium are then examined to find common functions that apply across all six mediums. The common functions of control, power projection, and power multiplication (CPM) are then combined to build a model for the application of operational art in a multi-medium environment

A Genius for Future War ( file )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
As the United States Military approaches the 21st Century we have every reason to be proud and confident of our position in the world. Still, nothing ever remains the same and the 21st Century will be no different in that respect. In fact, the impact of three emerging factors of change may be so great as to alter the very nature of war and how nations employ their armed forces. Those three factors are, the expansion of battlespace, the impact of information, and chaos and complexity. In light of the changing nature of war, we must continue to improve our Armed Forces to remain the finest military in the world and to continue to be the most effective possible instrument of national strategy. This improvement must encompass all facets of things military, including, organizations, operational concepts, technologies, readiness and training, our servicemen, and leadership. Of the facets listed above, the most important is leadership. The best equipment, concepts, and servicemen can never realize their potential without the finest possible leadership, what Clausewltz called "a genius for war." In his theoretical work, On War, Clausewitz developed the nature of war, deriving from that nature the need for genius in war and the attributes of that genius. As we enter the 21st Century, we need a "Genius for Future War." While Clausewitz' attributes of genius in war (Courage, Strength, and Coup D'oeil) remain valid; to build genius for future war we must develop leaders who can excel as the nature of war adapts to the three critical change factors certified above. This paper reviews Clausewltz attributes of genius in war in the context of the nature of war. We then examine how the nature of war, and thus the attributes of genius, will change in the early 21st Century. Finally, we will suggest how the United States Armed Forces can develop A Genius for Future War
