Library Journal Review

How To Make War lists the general's 111 maxims for combat, something he knew quite a bit about. The 1973 collection also contains an essay by translator Sanborn. The 1934 Letters volume corals his correspondence with family members and other soldiers and politicos. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
