5.0 out of 5 stars A phenomenally well researched gem of two books, 17 Aug 2002
I bought this volume initially to get some ideas on military modelling projects. I expected standard fare This along with its companion volume on Infantry MAA 235 represent the truly unique Osprey Ment at arms. With the precision of a High Court Judge the author blows away all the myths about Gustavus Adolphus and his supposed invention of uniforms, tactics and the lightened musket for example. I would recommend this book as a superb, readable and well illustrated example of how carefully reasoned academic research can turn 2 centuries of assumptions on their head. Recommended to historians and Academics.....Oh and by the way to Military History Enthusiasts..its a pretty mean sourcebook and military text as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars The author's best book, 28 April 2002
Although some of the concepts have been revised in her later work Customer Capitalism, Professor Vandermerwe's book The "Eleventh Commandment" represents her most intelligent and lucid thinking to date. Like its predecessor it blows apart the traditional marketing AND strategy 101 I was taught in business school. The author makes many brags about the new strategy....but annoyingly demonstrates where those brags have been made good. If your not convinced after a first reading....you never are!
