    Words Go to War

    'Battles are won through the ability of men to express concrete ideas in clear and unmistakable language.' Michael Keane's book opens with this quote from Brig. Gen. SLA Marshall and the entire work is supplemented with similarly powerful quotes used to highlight important strategic terminology. But does anybody really read a dictionary from cover to cover? Well, this one is an exception. It is so much more than an ordinary lexicon ¿ it combines a dictionary, a book of quotations and an encyclopedia of battles. The author's definitions and descriptions are thorough, informative, and entertaining. This is well worth the time and money if you are interested in military strategy, history or current events. The author is a strategist who lectures at the Marshall School of Business at USC. He was embedded in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division and also spent a year in Vietnam on a fellowship with the Department of Defense. Words go to war as surely as soldiers do, the author writes in his preface, which is an eloquent statement of the importance of language in conflict.
