Notes

First edition. Highly influential military-historical study by "a sober and prudent soldier and a forceful exponent of the German conception of war" (Gat, The Development of Military Thought. The Nineteenth Century, p.112), this copy from the library of B.H. Liddell Hart, his bookplate to the front pastedown, pencil markings, and the occasional comment, to the margins, and a two-page carbon copy typescript of commentary on the text. An attractive association.
