  2. The Future of Infantry.

    The Future of Infantry.

    First edition, second state. The first in Faber's short-lived Art of War series; the only other title was Fuller's Generalship of the same year. In a short piece adapted from a lecture given at Southern Command in the winter of 1931 the author argues that, following the horrors of the First World War, the infantry still have a future role of "usefulness and dignity" as a "corps d'élite of 'field craftsmen'".

  5. The Current of War.

    The Current of War.

    First edition of this collection of prophetic articles from the 20s and 30s on the possible shape of the coming war, and current articles on its actual progress. Mearsheimer is predictably critical of Liddell Hart's selective use of evidence "highly questionable" inferences (see Liddell Hart and the Weight of History, p. 180). This copy is inscribed by the author on the half-title; "To Storm Jameson in admiration & friendship from Basil Liddell Hart, 27th May 1941". Learn More
