Principles of War is a reprinted translation from the Japanese. The idea for the translation came from Colonel Tsutomu Matsumura, Japanese Liaison Officer at the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Knowing the nature of the original version and being keenly aware of the role played by historical examples, Colonel Matsumura suggested Principles of War be shared with a larger, English speaking audience. Upon approval by the Deputy Commandant, USACGSC, Dr. Joseph West translated the book under TRADOC contract. Senri nyumon (An Introduction to the Principles of War) is required reading for all Japan Ground Self-Defense Force officers. The book is not read once and forgotten — it is one of the basic texts studied by Japanese officers in preparation for the highly competitive entrance exam to the Japanese Command and Staff School. Unlike many books about tactics, Principles offers a lively and vivid picture of the art of warfare. The chief reason for this quality lies in the use of specific historical examples of battles won and lost to illustrate a particular tactic or principle. In a narrow sense, it reveals the value of military history when properly applied to abstract concepts. The historical examples are wide ranging and diverse. The authors have great respect for the evolution of military science, drawing on Eastern and Western military experiences alike. By offering samples rich in military tradition, the book affords new insights for the American officer which will broaden and deepen his historical consciousness. Many of the battles cited in Principles will not be immediately recognizable to American readers. In order to enhance the usability of the material, the Combat Studies Institute has appended a selective bibliography of material relating to the examples used in the text. This will enable the reader to pursue additional study in selected areas of interest. ...
