9781330002452: Military Studies (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Military Studies

In giving a translation of Marshal Ney's Military Studies - an officer not only le plus brave des braves but justly celebrated for his talents, as well as for the accuracy of his evolutions, and the precision and simplicity of his formations, - it is not intended to impugn the principles of British tactics, nor to derogate from the lofty pretensions and unquestioned merit of the great founder of the British system - a system which has stood the test of practical experience in peace and in war - a system scientifically erected on sound and true principles, and which will long remain a splendid testimony of the zeal, genius, and prodigious industry of its illustrious architect.

But admirable as that system is, it would be too much to assume that it is not susceptible of improvement. Bigots may brawl, "Great is Diana of the Ephesians," but Englishmen will not forget that it was by acting on the liberal maxim, fas est etiam ab hoste doceri, that Rome became mistress of the world!
