Overview

"In 1991, General Norman Schwarzkopf drove Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait using several specific strategies. Schwarzkopf established a temporary supply base in the Saudi Arabian desert to form a base of operations for the U.S. Seventh Corps and then used Marine and Arab coalition allies in a pinning operation against Iraqi troops in Kuwait while the Seventh Corps made a turning movement into the Iraqi rear. Having captured its limited, geographic objective, the coalition called a halt to the war. Schwarzkopf's strategies came straight from Antoine-Henri Jomini's The Art of War, which is the foundation of professional military education in the Western world." - from the new introduction....Antoine Henri de Jomini's The Art of War is considered by many to be the definitive work on military strategy and tactics. His impact on professional military thinking, doctrine and vocabulary is unparalleled by any other military theoretician. Though authors like Clausewitz may be better known to some, few can match the breadth of practical advice offered by the man who served both Napoleon and the Russian Tsar....This edition faithfully reproduces Jomini's seminal work, beautifully reformatted and typeset and includes a new introduction and brief chapter by chapter commentary.

    Not worth downloading if you are using an iPhone

    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.
