‘The late Prince Kraft zu Hohenlohe Ingelfingen was not only known as one of Prussia’s ablest soldiers, but also as one of the best of German military authors. During the wars of 1866 and 1870 he commanded the Artillery of the Guard, and in the latter portion of the Franco-German struggle he directed the artillery operations against Paris. After the termination of the war he held several high positions of command.
His best-known works are:—
“On the Employment of Artillery in combination with the other Arms,” translated by the late Major Clarke.
“Letters on Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery,” which have been ably rendered into English by Colonel Walford, Royal Artillery.
“Conversations on Cavalry,” recently translated by Captain Maude, late Royal Engineers.
The “Letters on Strategy,” which are contained in this volume, form an able treatise on this portion of the art of war. They are not to be taken up lightly, or to be dipped into here and there, but conscientiously studied they form a valuable means of instruction in strategical matters, and for this reason they are placed before the British military reader.’-Introduction
