About the Series

The volumes in Essentials of Strategy cover wars, conflicts, and battles through the prism of strategy. Aiming to develop a broad strategic literacy, this series will offer short works on the strategies employed by belligerents and competing powers. So widely employed but little defined, strategy requires additional study from contemporary scholars and historians, with an emphasis on lessons gleaned for modern practitioners, and revelations revealed for contemporary readers.
