Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
How To Make War lists the general's 111 maxims for combat, something he knew quite a bit about. The 1973 collection also contains an essay by translator Sanborn. The 1934 Letters volume corals his correspondence with family members and other soldiers and politicos.
