A history of warfare, Montgomery of Alamein

Product description

Never before has the general history of warfare been written by a professional soldier who has himself victoriously commanded great armies in the field. Nobody is better able to contribute to our understanding of warfare, and therefore peace, than Field Marshal Montgomery.

He impresses on the reader the importance of political factors in war, indicating when these become paramount, and lays down the profound truth that the object of Grand Strategy must be a secure and lasting peace. Leadership runs like a golden tread throughout the book and the great captains of the past are examined under a microscope.. In the epilogue Montgomery indicates his intense interest in the human factor in war and the need to regard the lives of his men as precious. Illustrated with 35 maps, 18 battle plans and 16 weapons drawings. Profusely illustrated with over 190 in monochrome, 32 colour plates. 35 maps, 18 battle plans and 16 weapon drawings.
The book is in very good condition with a good, unclipped, but sunned dustwrapper.
