Most widely held works by Ira D Gruber
The Howe brothers and the American Revolution by Ira D Gruber( Book )

21 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in English and French and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By focusing on the Howe brothers, their political connections, their relationships with the British ministry, their attitude toward the Revolution, and their military activities in America, Gruber answers the frequently asked question of why the British failed to end the American Revolution in its early years. This book supersedes earlier studies because of its broader research and because it elucidates the complex personal interplay between Whitehall and its commanders."--Book description, Amazon.com
Books and the British Army in the age of the American Revolution by Ira D Gruber( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By examining the preferences of some forty-two officers who served between the War of the Spanish Succession and the French Revolution, Gruber shows that by the middle of the eighteenth century British officers were discriminating in their choices of books on war and, further, that their emerging preference for Continental books affected their understanding of warfare and their conduct of operations in the American Revolution. --from publisher description

The plains of Mars : European war prints, 1500-1825, from the collection of the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation by James Clifton( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1500 to 1825, Europe remained in an almost perpetual state of war. Religion, politics, economics, and dynastic ambition all played a role in the turmoil that spread across the continent. War-related printed images also proliferated during this time, serving a variety of functions - commemorative, propagandistic, iconic, narrative, eulogistic, critical, or instructional." "This handsome volume is the first graphic print survey of the theme of war in the early modern period. Featuring work by such artists as Durer, Goya, and Gericault, the book presents varied images of soldiers; battles (including specific historical events); production, innovation, and instruction in arms and armor; and representations of abstract concepts related to war and peace. The text includes essays by eminent authorities that illuminate artistic and historical issues of the era."--Jacket
