In this single volume reissue are three of Spenser Wilkinson's works. Wilkinson was concerned with the practical requirements of modern warfare and believed that organizational changes and strategic guidance had to be implemented from above. In 1890 he published "The Brain of an Army" in which he presented a cogent argument for the reform of the War Office and the establishment of a body analogous to the German General Staff. Encouraged by the enthusiastic response he received from various quarters, Wilkinson widened the general debate to include seapower with the publication of "The Command of the Sea" (1894) and "The Brain of a Navy" (1895). The direct consequence of this was the formation of the non-political pressure group, The Navy League, which offered a platform for Wilkinson to continue to articulate his case for reform. As an advocate of reform, Wilkinson played a major role in military thinking up to the outbreak of the First World War.
