Bag o' Democracy

Commentary from an Armchair Strategist/Military Otaku/whatever it's called

I've been studying military strategy as research for my novel, But ever since then I've gotten into it as a hobby. My favorite books so far have been Infantry Attacks by Erwin Rommel, Mao Tse-tung's On Guerilla Warfare, Special Ops: 1939-1945: A Manual of Covert Warfare and Training, and the US Army Ranger Handbook. My only problem is I cannot find Tables 5 and 6 of Mao's On Guerilla Warfare(Yu Chi Chan), and that makes me a sad panda :(
