The military masters of the past speak swift, laconic truths that willalways govern the art of war. In this omnibus, edited by one of America'sforemost military writers, you will find the permanent military classics.Sun-Tzu (500 B.C.) leads off with his
Art of War,
the oldest militarytreatise in the world and a valuable guide to the military student able toadapt its principles to conditions of modern warfare.Then comes Vegetius'
De Re Militari,
the most influential militarywork written in the Western world. The disciplinary practices of our ownArmy can be traced to Vegetius.Following Vegetius is Marshal de Saxe's
Reveries upon the Art of War.
One of the greatest generals of all time, de Saxe understood thehuman heart, interested himself in his soldiers, and, unique in his time, didnot treat them like cannon-fodder.
The Secret Instructions of Frederick the Great to His Generals
follows de Saxe. Next to Clausewitz, this has been the most important work in founding the German military system of today. Most of Frederick'sobservations apply to modern war.Napoleon's
need no introduction. They are now out of print,and you can buy them only in this collection.
