Product Description


"Michael Howard writes about what history suggest with regard to the present and the future perhaps a reflection of time spent in combat in Italy against Germans, where he earned a Military Cross. In the 1950s Howard headed the Department of War Studies at King's College, London. He later co-founded the international Institute for Strategic Studies. This collection of Howard's lectures, developed between 1992 and 2003, will probably be his last book. In it he examines the larger framework of the 20th century, the German wars, the Cold War, Europe after the Cold War, and the War on Terrorism." Williamson Murray, Military History, March/April 2008 --Sanford Lakoff
