About the Author

Sir Michael Howard is Emeritus Professor of Modern History at the University of Oxford. His publications include The Franco-Prussian War (1961), which won the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize, Grand Strategy, which was volume 4 in the United Kingdom History of the Second World War (1971) (Wolfson Foundation History Award, 1972), The Lessons of History (1991), and many others. He has held the Chair of War Studies at King's College, London, the Chichele Chair of War and the Regius Chair of Modern History at Oxford, and the Robert A. Lovatt Chair of Military and Naval History at Yale.


I cannot think of a better book to put in the hands of someone setting out on the study of military history. * Military Times *
Howard's chief strength...[is] that he widens the study of warfare to take in economic, political and social factors. * Military Times *
