Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 66 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.1in.Excerpt from A Course of Instruction in the Elements of the Art and Science of War: For the Use of Cadets of the United States Military Academy1. Nations often become involved with other nations or states in quarrels or disputes which can not be settled or composed by peaceful measures. Military force is then employed and the resulting contest is known as war. 2. War has therefore been defined to be a contest between nations, states, or parts of states, carried on by force. Wars are classified in various ways. They are classified from the nature of the military operations employed in their prosecution; into offensive or defensive wars: from the end to be attained; into wars of conquest, wars of independence, etc. : from the causes producing the war; into wars of insurrection, religious wars, etc. : from the general locality in which they are waged; into American, African, European, etc. Other classifications than these are also used, being based on the nature and object of the war. The subdivisions and classifications employed are generally of so marked a character that the reader will easily perceive the reasons governing their use by the writer.

Book Description Pranava Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1878 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Language: eng 348 pages. Seller Inventory # 100152319231
