Genius for War
by Trevor N. Dupuy

Since the Prussian armies of Frederick the Great achieved their amazing victories in the mid-18th century, the Prussian and German armies have established the standard of military excellence against which the performance of all other armies has been measured. This widely acclaimed book explores the reasons behind the excellence of German fighting forces, and attributes much of this skill to the Prussian and German General Staffs. The author's hypotheses are substantiated in brilliant analyses of German performance in victory and defeat. (NOVA Publications) ISBN 0-9638692-1-3 Paper $23.95 362 pages
