This collection contains the five greatest and most influential military classics written prior to the nineteenth century. The first, The Art of War by Sun Tzu, is not only the oldest military work in existence but is unquestionably the greatest military classic in any language. It has had little influence in the western world, but has guided Chinese and Japanese military thought for 2400 years. All the works contained in this volume are out of print in English and all are an indispensable part of an officer’s military education and the foundation of a military library. Saxe’s Reveries and Frederick the Great’s Secret Instructions to his Generals are newly translated by Major T. R. Phillips from the most authentic foreign editions.

Selections from four legends in maritime and air strategy: Mahan, Corbett, Douhet and Mitchell Introduction by noted military strategist and author David Jablonsky David Jablonsky has compiled the best writings of four of the most influential theorists of naval and air power in the past century. Alfred Thayer Mahan's Influence of Sea Power Upon History, Julian Corbett's Some Principles of Maritime Strategy, Guilio Douhet's Command of the Air, and William "Billy" Mitchell's Winged Defense continue to have relevance for students and practitioners of naval and air strategy. They illustrate the continuity of strategic thought, even through current times of great and widespread change.

Strategy: arguably one of the most abstract elements that leaders have to deal with. But where did it come from and how will it develop in the future? That is the framework within which this book will take a closer look at the phenomenon "strategy." Development tendencies in the field of strategy are found and possible future trends are extrapolated. A historical overview is created to map out the roots of strategy, found in military thinking. The focus is then shifted to strategy in the business environment. An analysis is made identifying the general development trends in the field of strategy. This includes a closer look at two essential phenomena: globalization as well as alliances and networking. The analysis is used as a basis to extrapolate what business strategy will be about in the future. This general forecast includes basic implications and suggestions for companies on how to prepare for the future. The book offers basic research along with practically relevant insights, incorporating content for both, those interested in the historical evolution of strategy, military or business wise, as well as decision makers looking for a new perspective on the topic of strategy.
