A History of Strategy by Martin van Creveld MOBI

"Martin van Creveld ranks high among military historians, and given the changes in technology since Napoleonic Times, his work is a necessary supplement to Clausewitz." (Jerry Pournelle)

The Art of War by Sun Tzu and On War by Carl von Clausewitz are known to everyone who studies war. But in the approximately 2,327 years that separated man's two most famous works of military tactics and strategy, a considerable number of less well-known works were published. Some, such as those written by Vauban and Douhet, were focused on specific aspects of war while others, like Onasander and Jomini, wrote works that were more general in nature. But all of them were written with the objective of permitting generals and other leaders of men to wage war more effectively.

There are few better suited to write the history of strategy and military thought than Dr. Martin van Creveld, who has been a significant contributor to the literature of war. A professor emeritus at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Dr. van Creveld is one of the world's leading writers on military history and strategy, with a special interest in the future of war. He is fluent in Hebrew, German, Dutch, and English and has authored more than 20 books, including the influential Technology and War: 2000 BC to the Present (1988), The Transformation of War (1991), and The Culture of War (2010). He is known for his development of the concept of "nontrinitarian" warfare as well as contributing two books to the 4GW canon.

Featuring a foreword by Dr. Jerrry Pournelle, A History of Strategy: From Sun Tzu to William S. Lind begins with the Chinese military literature, then reviews the Greek, Roman, and Byzantine works before proceeding to the Middle Ages. From Machiavelli and Montecuccoli to Guibert and Frederick the Great, van Creveld chronicles the gradual transition from medieval to Napoleonic warfare and onward into the nuclear age and the rise of ISIS.
