KIRKUS REVIEW

Of permanent worth and an important book and an interesting history of the military development of the world powers from the middle ages to the present. The author draws a fine line between the military way and the militaristic way; the former scientific, the latter traditional. The author is a German and an historian, with a practical experience of four and a half years in the army. His appreciation of the implications of his profession as historian forced him out of Nazi Germany... The book is fully annotated. Will be a valuable addition to reference shelves and of interest to students of world affairs and general history.
