"The twentieth century has brought new dimensions to war. This book sets out to show how the major military figures in the two world wars of the first half of the century attempted to direct war in conditions which, certainly as far as the First World War was concerned, were unfamiliar. The pace of change was fast and the military profession tends to be conservative between wars for lack of opportunity to test itself in changing conditions. In war change is so rapid that it is difficult for anybody to adapt himself to it; but adapt themselves the participants must and do."-----from the Introduction by Field-Marshal Sir Michael Carver, General Editor Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
