More On War Description: "War is the most important thing in the world', writes Martin van Creveld, one of the world's best-known experts on military history and strategy.The survival of every country, government, and individual is ultimately dependent on war - or the ability to wage it in self-defence. That is why, though it may come but once in a hundred years, it must be prepared for every day. When it is too late - when the bodies lie stiff and people weep overthem - those in charge have failed in their duty. Nevertheless, in spite of the centrality of war to human history and culture, there has for long been no modern attempt to provide a replacement for the classics on war and strategy, Sun Tzu's The Art of War, dating from the 5th or 6th century BC, and Carl von Clausewitz's On War, written in theaftermath of the Napoleonic Wars. What is needed is a modern, comprehensive, easy to read and understand theory of war for the 21st century that could serve as a replacement for these classic texts. The purpose of the present book is to provide just such a theory.

On War Description: Nobel laureate, Oscar winner, and author of more than 50 plays, Bernard Shaw is perhaps as renowned for his political views as for his awe-inspiring artistic output. A brand new selection of his writings on war bring once more to the forefront the polemical work of one of the most outspoken commentators of the early 20th century. As a cofounder of the Fabian society, an equal rights campaigner, and an ardent socialist, Shaw was never known to shy away from controversy, and was accused of treason for the 1914 publication Common Sense About the War, in which he affront patriots and the government alike. His vehemently anti-war stance was almost prophetic in its progressive nature, and holds particular resonance in today's climate of unrest.
