"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."--Amazon
The Rommel papers by Erwin Rommel( Book )

49 editions published between 1953 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,594 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

Verdenskrig, samt om myter, hele og halve "sandheder", fordrejninger, misinformation, vildledning, og fjendebilleder, m.v
Great captains unveiled by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

35 editions published between 1927 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Great Captains Unveiled incisively examines the brilliant military careers and intriguing personalities of six masters of the battlefield, all of whom antedate the French Revolution: Jenghiz Khan (1167?-1227) and Sabutai (1172?-1245), who led their Mongol cavalry into the heart of medieval Europe and shook the fabric of its civilization; the French Marechal de Saxe (1696-1750), one of the greatest generals of his age, a military prophet of rare foresight, and author of Reveries, a classic on the art of war; Gustavus Adolphus (1594-1632), the Swedish king during the Thirty Years War and the founder of the modern army, who emphasized officer education, national recruitment, and the combination of firepower and mobility; Wallenstein (1583-1634), champion of the Holy Roman Empire and Adolphus's formidable opponent, who proved to be a genius of maneuver and psychological warfare; and James Wolfe (1727-1759), whose flawless execution of one of the most daring amphibious operations in history virtually gave Canada to the British. Liddell Hart's penetrating, decisive studies of these great captains reveal not only their genius and impact, but offer relevant lessons that 20th-century military commanders have yet to fully reap
The Red Army : the Red Army, 1918 to 1945 : the Soviet Army, 1946 to the present by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

11 editions published between 1956 and 1968 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'T. E. Lawrence'; in Arabia and after by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

79 editions published between 1934 and 1979 in 4 languages and held by 726 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

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

1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 675 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

Deterrent or defense, a fresh look at the West's military position by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

23 editions published between 1960 and 2018 in English and French and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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". Fra bogens overskrifter: 1. Retrospect: A Russian "look" in 1952; The American "New look" in 1954; The British "Old look" of 1956. 2. Prospect: The Sputnik and the Lunik; Basic problems of Western Defence; The perils of H-trigger alertness; Are small atomic weapons the answer?; Is gas a better alternative?; Could conventional forces suffice?; The ratio of forces to space; Amphibious flexibillity and forces. 3. The NATO shield: Can NATO protect us today?; Cloud over Berlin; Cloud over the Baltic Flank; Cloud over the Near East Flank; The defence of Central Europe. 4. Tactical: New tactics and organisation; Tanks and their future; The development of night action. 5. Alternative proposals: Passive resistance; Neutrality; Disengagement; An international force. 6. Epilogue: The most hopeful road to peace
Scipio Africanus : greater than Napoleon by Basil Henry Liddell Hart( Book )

17 editions published between 1938 and 2018 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 602 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

"Thomas Edward Lawrence, CB, DSO (16 August 1888-19 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
