The conduct of war; a brief study of its most important principles and forms. (reprint, 1896)
In this reprint from 1896, Goltz, who was a Royal Prussian lieutenant-general, discusses the nature and methods of waging war and its place in society, as well as strategy, types of offensive and defensive approaches, and operations, including the influence of naval operations. He uses examples such as Napoleon's strategies, the US Civil War, and those of the Prussian army. Joseph T. Dickman, a lieutenant in the US Army, translated the book.
