This book is an excellent resource for students of strategy or even general readers interested in gaining knowledge of strategy.

On War is a brilliant book on warfare strategy. It is very complex, and only the most indugeous minds can fully comprehend this. And yet, it is so simple that its tactics can be employed in a water gun fight.

On War is essentially the guide followed by Sherman on his famous march to the sea. The concept of TOTAL WAR was outlined in this expansive text.

I needed all eight books within On War- and paid for this thinking it had all of them. Unfortunately it only has the first four.
