THE PRINCIPLES OF WAR
From Army Field Manual (FM) 3-0 OPERATIONS, here are the Principles of War
The nine principles of war provide general guidance for conducting war and military operations other than war at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels. The principles are the enduring bedrock of Army doctrine. The US Army published its original principles of war after World War I. In the following years, the Army adjusted the original principles, but overall they have stood the tests of analysis, experimentation, and practice.In the future, I'll be using this as a backdrop for discussing strategy as it applies to the game of RON, but interested (or just impatient) readers can go directly to the source.
As a book on how to wage war effectively, FM 3-0 Operations is probably one of the better and more readable tomes around. It's always been my favorite source material (back when it was named FM 100-5) for discussing military theory.
