A collection of extracts combining advice (both sage and satirical) and life lessons from military figures through the ages From Napoleon Bonaparte to Winston Churchill, military experience has provided both men and women through the ages with a wealth of sage advice and wise council, not only on wartime strategy, but on lessons for living a good life; from the moral and political dimensions of conflict, to leadership, work, marriage, family, and friendship. Historian Jeremy Archer has delved into his personal archives to compile an absorbing and illuminating collection of advice from military figures through the ages, from great generals and military strategists, to wartime leaders, soldiers, writers, and poets. Ranging in tone from the heartfeltâ€â€such as letters of advice written from fathers to sonsâ€â€to more light-hearted instruction, this collection of military wisdom provides a wealth of wise words, humorous anecdotes, and witty bon mots, as well as life lessons learned by military figures that still resonate strongly today.
