Overview


An eyewitness to most of the important battles of the Napoleonic Wars, Baron Antoine Henri de Jomini served with both the French and the Anglo-Allied armies. His firsthand accounts of the conflicts are the most authoritative ever written, hailed by experts as both accurate and insightful. It endures as the definitive work on strategy and tactics and as a fundamental source of modern military thought. In fact, generals on both sides of the American Civil War were well schooled in The Art of War. 
Jomini approaches warfare from several directions, including strategy, tactics, logistics, engineering, and diplomacy. He examines each in turn, and he offers an analysis of strategic problems posed by a variety of theaters and terrains, the tactics of attack and defense, surprise maneuvers, special operations, the importance of reconnaissance, and the deployment of forces.
Few can match the breadth of advice offered by the man who was critical to the success of both Napoleon and Czar Alexander I. Unsurpassed in its influence on military thinking, doctrine, and vocabulary, Jomini's classic remains both a historic and practical guide to students of warfare.

This ebook was compiled from scans of the original book. I downloaded it hoping to get a copy of Sun Tzu's The Art of War (this isn't that book, there doesn't appear to be a free version of that public domain book available for the Nook at this time). I only scanned a few pages (looking for the title page to confirm whether Antoine Jomini was the Author or Translator of this particular book and found that every page was offset. On the iPhone you only see the top left corner of any page, this leaves an unreadable book. I haven't tried this on any other nook devices or software programs, so if you have a larger device you might have better luck, but if you're downloading it to an iPhone, steer clear.
