No Dj. 8vo. pp. 942, some yellow high-lighting on about 10 pages at the beginning fo the book, o/w vg, "Makers of Modern Strategy, first pub lished in 1943, deserved and demanded updating. The 28 essays in the new vol ume7 more than in the original range from excellent to outstanding. They reflect the skills of a cross-section of leading military historians. But re viving a classic is a difficult task. Some original contributions were discarded, some rewritten, some left virtually in tact. Old and new frequently coexist awkwardly, as when Hajo Holbom and Gunther Rothenberg compete for 19th-century Germany. The editors' reluc tance to impose a common format add ed to an intellectual diffusion most visible in a split between biographic and thematic approaches. As a result, this revision cannot equal its predecessor's status as a standard text. As an antholo gy, however, the work is brilliantly suc cessfuland that is no mean achieve ment. Recommended for all students of military history.".
