About this title

Synopsis:

This reference covers nearly 4000 years of military words wisdom ranging from Sesostris III to Norman Schwarzkopf, on topics ranging from ability and bureaucracy to weather and youth. It should be of interest to writers, speakers, historians and serving officers.

From Library Journal:

This anthology draws its material from 4000 years of reflection on war. The authors range from Clausewitz and Napoleon to otherwise obscure junior officers. Most of them are soldiers, and most are part of the Western military heritage. The quotations are well chosen overall, but the work's primary value lies in its structure. The entries are grouped under almost 350 separate subject headings: concepts and topics such as Danger, Imagination, and Will. This detailed organization is a welcome contrast to Justin Wintle's Dictionary of War Quotations ( LJ 3/1/90), facilitating access to the aphorisms for specialists and nonspecialists alike. A biographical index of contributors enhances the user-friendliness of a volume that belongs in most public and private collections on military history.
