This ground-breaking book examines the 25 key tactics that have achieved victory in battle through the ages. Using case studies from conflicts around the globe, on land, at sea and in the air, and across history, it demonstrates how certain tactical concepts have stood the test of time, employed in different circumstances and by different commanders. The expert authors reveal the value of each tactic in clear and compelling descriptions, each time concluding with a critical analysis that shows how it was applied and explains the reasons for its success.
