The classic book on strategy by one of the foremost military thinkers of the twentieth century, "Strategy" draws on all of military history, from the Greek-Persian wars of the fifth century B.C. to the development of geurrilla warfare in the nuclear age. Liddell Hart provides a perceptive and fascinating examination of wars and their architects. He shows how Hitler almost won, and ultimately lost, World War II, and defines practical principles - "Adjust your end to your means, " "Take a line of operation which offers alternate objectives" - that are as fundamental in the worlds of politics and business as they are in warfare. This extraordinary work should be essential reading for anyone fascinated by military history and strategy.

Book Description Plume Books, United Kingdom, 1991. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. "The most important book by one of the outstanding military authorities of our time."--Library Journal Strategy is a seminal work of military history and theory, and a perfect companion to Sun-tzu's The Art of War and Carl von Clauswitz's On War. This is the classic book on war as we know it. During his long life, Basil H. Liddell Hart was considered one of the world's foremost military thinkers. In his writing, he stressed movement, flexibility, and surprise. He saw that in most military campaigns, it was vital to take an indirect approach. Rather than attacking the enemy head-on, one must dislocate their psychological and physical balance. With key examples from World War I and World War II (think trench warfare vs Blitzkreig), Liddell Hart defines the practical principles of waging war--"Adjust your end to your means," "Take a line of operation which offers alternate objectives"--and proves they are as fundamental in the worlds of politics and business as they are in warfare.
