Overview

- Introduction by SAS and Gulf War hero Andy McNab DCM MM

- The 1862 version of The Art of War

- Translated from French by Capt GH Mendell and Lieut WP Craighill

- Contains all of Jomini’s original maps and diagrams

- Beautifully formatted in this Apostrophe Books edition

Known as “the founder of modern strategy,” Swiss military tactician Jomini put his considerable powers into a system to destroy the enemy in the most efficient manner. The result, The Art of War, quickly became a military sensation, with both sides in the US Civil War famously pitting his theories against one another.

Jomini promoted the theory of going to war on the map, studying the entire theatre of conflict and concentrating your greatest firepower where it is needed most.

“Military science rests upon principles which can never be safely violated in the presence of an active and skilful enemy,” he wrote.

Read Jomini’s renowned work in this beautifully-produced Apostrophe Books edition with an introduction by Gulf War legend and bestselling author Andy McNab – the British Army’s most highly decorated serving soldier when he left the SAS.

Meet the Author

Andy McNab joined the infantry at the age of sixteen and was a British soldier for eighteen years. ‘Badged’ as a member of 22 Special Air Service Regiment in 1984, he was involved for the next ten years in both covert and overt special operations worldwide.
During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, ‘will remain in regimental history for ever’. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army’s most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS.

He wrote about his experiences in three books: the phenomenal bestseller Bravo Two Zero, Immediate Action and Seven Troop. He is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone thrillers.
Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK and is on the board of a private security company operating in hazardous environments.

Now Andy McNab has joined forces with ApostropheBooks.com to bring you some of the world’s greatest military classics.

Read an Excerpt

The art of war, as generally considered, consists of five purely military branches,—viz.: Strategy, Grand Tactics, Logistics, Engineering, and Tactics. A sixth and essential branch, hitherto unrecognized, might be termed Diplomacy in its relation to War. Although this branch is more naturally and intimately connected with the profession of a statesman than with that of a soldier, it cannot be denied that, if it be useless to a subordinate general, it is indispensable to every general commanding an army: it enters into all the combinations which may lead to a war, and has a connection with the various operations to be undertaken in this war; and, in this view, it should have a place in a work like this.
