Victories Are Not Enough: Limitations Of The German Way Of War By Samuel J. Newland, Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $17.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
Since the early stages of World War II, militaries in general, and the U.S. Army in particular, have studied the German way of war, specifically as practiced in the 20th century.

This failure, which led to Germany’s defeat in these wars, should not be lost on modern nations as they proceed into the 21st century.< Less
