Military Encounters (Words of Wisdom Series): Quotations on War and Peace

by Robert Edwards (Editor)




From the beginning of recorded history, mankind has grappled with issues of warfare. The analysis of strategies, tactics, and battles won and lost has been the subject of debate and discussion for centuries.

Assembled together in Military Encounters are hundreds of quotations that deal with the themes of war and peace. Historians, philosophers, military commanders, and political leaders meet from across the boundaries of time and place to exchange thoughts, ideas, and insights on all things military.

Napoleon Bonaparte, Karl von Clausewitz, Basil Liddell Hart, and Sun Tzu each elaborate on strategies of war. Dwight D. Eisenhower, General George S. Patton, Stonewall Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln discuss the art of leadership. And Mahatma Gandhi, Ernest Hemingway, Herodotus, and George Washington share insights on the price of peace.

With keen observations and insightful commentary, Military Encounters is a revealing collection about the age-old subject of warfare.
