The Xingyiquan of the Chinese Army, by Dennis Rovere with translation by Chow Hon Huen
There's little doubt if you had to train military personnel in any internal martial art in a short period of time you'd have to go with Xingyiquan due to its simplicity of movement, directness, and ease of application and innovation.
The text includes a translation of Huang Bo Nien's "Xingyi Fist and Weapon Instruction" as well as an interesting comparison of Hebei Xingyi's Five Fists, Linking Set, and sabre techniques. Additonally, there's a unique presentation of Rifle and Bayonet Training and Xingyi.
Pictures of Jiang Rong Qiao practicing the Five Fists, the Single Linking of the Five Fists, and a few of him with a hand weapon, as well as his introduction (acknowledging his involvment in Huang Bo Nien's book) augment the text.
