Praxis: 4th Generation Warfare texts.

Sun Tzu.
“The first, the supreme, the most far-reaching act of judgment that the statesman and commander have to make is to establish . . . the kind of war on which they are embarking; neither mistaking it for, nor trying to turn it into something that is alien to its nature.” -- Carl von Clausewitz, On War
Someone will be fighting it. You'd better understand it -- from both sides.
Also, if you haven't read and internalized Sun Tzu's Art of War or Card's Ender's Game, do so. "The enemy's gate is down."
