The Five Greatest MilitaryClassics of All Time!
ROOTS OF STRATEGY
 
Edited by Lt. Col. (then Major)
 
Thomas R. Phillips
 
U. S. Army
 
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
Maxims
need no introduction. They are now out of print,and you can buy them only in this collection.

 Roots of Strategy
the foundation of your militarylibrary.

BRIG, GEN. J. P. LUCAS was a member of the Field Artillery Board during the time theBoard was testing our new 105-mm. howitzer. Heis, therefore, especially qualified to describe thedevelopment of this weapon. All reports fromthose who have had a chance to fire the 105 arefull of enthusiasm for it; its appearance in quantityin organizations is eagerly awaited. Perhaps twofeatures of the 105 which make it superior to ourprevious light weapons are its power andversatility. Although primarily a cannon for closesupport of the infantry, it will find use with thearmored divisions, and with horse cavalry; it iseffective for counterbattery, and with direct fireagainst heavy tanks. Complete characteristics of the 105 have not been released for publication.ONE OF THE most striking features of thecurrent expansion of our Army is theestablishment of the Replacement Centers. Theyare really more than the name indicates, and willprovide a highly efficient method of fillingorganizations with men who have received soundbasic training. General Snow started replacementcenters for the Field Artillery during the WorldWar, and his active assistant in this was Gen.Danford, now Chief of Field Artillery. The FieldArtillery is justly proud of the part it has played indeveloping this scheme, and we predict that theArmy will be repaid a thousand fold for the effortswhich have been made in giving the ReplacementCenters a proper start. Lieut. Col. Parker, memberof the group which is organizing the Center atBragg, gives us the general picture. Later T

In an early issue we will present one of Col.

is covered well in the valuable ideasfurnished herein by Captain Ellsworth.
