Series Cassell history of warfare.
Summary In a survey that looks widely across history and cultures, the theories of some of the finest military thinkers and strategists unfold, from the ancient Chinese tacticians like Sun Tzu who pioneered the art of writing about waging war, to classical antiquity and into the modern era. Here are the ideas of Machiavelli and Clausewitz, and a close examination of Byzantine and medieval thought, the 19th century, the effect of two World Wars, nuclear strategy, and guerrilla insurrections.
