Strategy by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

127 editions published between 1954 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Liddell Hart stressed movement, flexibility, and surprise. He saw that in most military campaigns dislocation of the enemy's psychological and physical balance is prelude to victory. This dislocation results from a strategic indirect approach. Reflect for a moment on the results of direct confrontation (trench war in WW I) versus indirect dislocation (Blitzkrieg in WW II). Liddell Hart is also tonic for business and political planning: just change the vocabulary and his concepts fit
The real war, 1914-1918 by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

44 editions published between 1930 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Captain B.H. Liddell Hart is the foremost authority on World War I. In The Real War, the author has fused exhaustive research and creative brilliance with brevity and precision. Thus we have in one volume the war transformed into literature -- an understandable, kaleidoscopic masterwork of military history. - Back cover
The Rommel papers by Erwin Rommel( Book )

39 editions published between 1952 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Edwin Rommel died--by forced suicide at Hitler's command--he left behind in various ingenious hiding places the papers that recorded the story of his dramatic career and the exact details of his masterly campaigns. It was his custom to dictate each evening a running narrative of the day's events and, after each battle, to summarize its course and the lessons to be learned from it. He wrote, almost daily, intimate and outspoken letters to his wife in which his private feelings and--after the tide had turned--forebodings founding expression. To this is added by Rommel's son Manfred the story of the Field Marshall's last weeks and the final day when he was given the choice of an honorable suicide or an ignominious trial for treason. An engrossing human document and a rare look at the mind of the 'Desert Fox, ' The Rommel Papers throws an interesting light on the Axis alliance and on the inner workings of Hitler's high command."--Page [4] cover

Memoirs of General William T. Sherman by William T Sherman( Book )

2 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Just as the Civil War has been called by military experts the first modern war, so General Sherman has been called the first modern general. His emphasis on strategy and mobility of troops has earned him a distinguished place in military history. First published just ten years after the Civil War ended, General Sherman's Memoirs, an intimate first-hand account, reveal the development of his ultimate theory that the way to decide wars and win battles is "more by the movement of troops than by fighting."--from inside jacket
'T. E. Lawrence'; in Arabia and after by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

82 editions published between 1934 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

T.E. Shaw, better known as Lawrence of Arabia, was one of the most romantic, heroic, and enigmatic figures of his day. The subject of myth and hagiography, he was equally accomplished in several fields--as archaeologist, diplomat, writer, and soldier--and he worked throughout World War I and after in the Middle East in efforts to promote independent Arab states. His autobiography Seven Pillars of Wisdom is one of the greatest works of its kind. The esteemed military historian B.H. Liddell Hart wrote this study of Lawrence in order to pierce the clouds of legend. He discussed Lawrence's Oxford days, his experiences as an intelligence officer in Egypt, and in particular the tactics of guerrilla warfare he practiced so effectively against the large Turkish armies during World War I. Liddell Hart was one of the few to give Lawrence his full justice as both a man and a brilliant soldier. Long out-of-print, this book unravels the many puzzling features of Lawrence's story and restores him to his proper place as one of the twentieth century's heroic, but very human, figures

Colonel Lawrence, the man behind the legend by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

26 editions published between 1934 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Edward Lawrence, CB, DSO (16 August 1888[5] ? 19 May 1935), known professionally as T. E. Lawrence, was a British Army officer renowned especially for his liaison role during the Sinai and Palestine Campaign and the Arab Revolt against Ottoman Turkish rule of 1916?18. The breadth and variety of his activities and associations, and his ability to describe them vividly in writing, earned him international fame as Lawrence of Arabia, a title which was used for the 1962 film based on his World War I activities."--Wikipedia

Forsvarspolitik, sikkerhedspolitik, den Vestlige verdens militære styrker og forsvarsmuligheder - "afskrækkelse eller forsvar" - en af den berømte engelske militærhistoriker Liddell Harts bøger, denne er fra 1960 og analyserer Vestens strategiske og taktiske position i atomalderen, under frygten for masseødelæggelsesvåben. "Nuclear parity has led to nuclear nullity, with the result that the Western powers are now gravely hampered in any attempt to resist the more subtle forms of agression and presure. The author, however, having carefully analysed the ailment, offers a hopeful cure, demonstrating how the weakness of the West's present position can be remedied without an intolerable outlay in strain and cost".

Scipio Africanus : greater than Napoleon by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

16 editions published between 1938 and 2006 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the future, even more than in the past, the need is to study and understand the interplay of the military, economic, and political forces, which are inseparable in strategy. Because Scipio more than any other great captain understood and combined these forces in his strategy, despite the very 'modern' handicap of being the servant of a republic -- not, like Alexander, Frederick, Napoleon, a despot, -- the study of his life is peculiarly apposite today. Above all, because the moral objective was the aim of all his plans, whether political, strategical, or tactical"--Preface
