Liddell Hart: A Study of His Military Thought

A careful analysis of Liddell Hart's thought and writings by a friend and pupil, this work is not a biography.


The British Army and the Theory of Armored Warfare, 1918-1940

Professor Larson's prize-winning book traces the development of the controversy surrounding armored warfare through the interwar years. Well written and thorough, his comprehensive study highlights the different ideas of Fuller and Liddell Hart and describes the British experiments with tanks in the 1930s.



In this survey of world military history, Liddell Hart, the "Captain who taught Generals," emphasizes his theory of the indirect approach. As Britain's most famous military journalist, his theories and writings have influenced many armed forces.
