“Nine-tenths of tactics are certain, and taught in books: but the irrational tenth is like the kingfisher flashing across the pool, and that is the test of generals.”

- T. E. Lawrence.

A short but comprehensive history of Scotland by one of the best-known newspapermen and writers of his day,  a quasi-scientific analysis of a single battle from Edward Creasy, a bloody boots-on-the-ground Civil War memoir by a remarkably articulate Confederate cannoneer,  an insightful Elbert Hubbard sketch of King Alfred, a history of the Ancient Greeks and a rare biography of Captain James Cook.

Strategy Six Pack 8 is a historian’s haversack of tactical texts spanning two millennia of conflict:

  • A Short History of Scotland by Andrew Lang.  
  • The Battle of Blenheim, 1704 by Edward Shepherd Creasy.  
  • The Story of a Cannoneer Under Stonewall Jackson by Edward A. Moore.   
  • King Alfred by Elbert Hubbard.    
  • The Story of the Greeks by H. A. Guerber.  
  • The Life of Captain James Cook, the Circumnavigator by Arthur Kitson.

Digital edition includes image gallery.

“Strategy requires thought, tactics require observation.”

- Max Euwe.
