On Guerrilla Warfare  (1937) 
by Mao Zedong, translated by Foreign Language Press, Peking
Written by Mao in 1937, when Japanese imperialists occupied all of China, this book served as an instruction manual for guerrilla fighting, written based on more than a decade of personal experience by Mao. Based on the basic strategy and tactics of warfare as described by Sun-tzu, Mao stresses the importance of guerrilla warfare tactics in a revolutionary war, emphasizing that they must be combined in conjunction with conventional warfare tactics. The source from which this work was transcribed comes from the Marxists Internet Archive.
