"The most important book by one of the outstanding military authorities of our time."-Library Journal
This is the classic book on war as we know it. During his long life, Basil H. Liddell Hart was considered one of the world's foremost military thinkers-a man generally regarded as the "Clausewitz of the 20th century." Strategy is a seminal work of military history and theory, a perfect companion to Sun-tzu's The Art of War and Carl von Clauswitz's On War.
Liddell Hart stressed movement, flexibility, and surprise. He saw that in most military campaigns dislocation of the enemy's psychological and physical balance is prelude to victory. This dislocation results from a strategic indirect approach. Reflect for a moment on the results of direct confrontation (trench war in WW I) versus indirect dislocation (Blitzkreig in WW II). He shows how Hitler almost won, and ultimately lost, World War II, and defines practical principles-"Adjust your end to your means," "Take a line of operation which offers alternate objectives"-that are as fundamental in the worlds of politics and business as they are in warfare.
