Elements of Military Art and Science By H. W. Halleck
Paperback: $19.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
This is Gen. H. W. Halleck's instructional textbook on the art and science of war -- used in military institutions in the Nineteenth Century including West Point. It thoroughly covers all the... More > aspects of waging war at an introductory level: the reasons for waging war, strategy (on a grand and operational level), tactics, logistics, fortifications, infantry, artillery, engineers. Everything is here for training would-be commanders of war. Again, it's the introductory course on war, so the author doesn't get into any detailed "prescriptive" analysis of any of these topics. Halleck's book would be a better read for the initiate than the current Army Field Manuals just to get an overall sense of the problem of war. Here you get it all in one volume in a conceptual framework; with modern works, you must use many volumes to get the same scope of the problem and must also delve deeply into the technical aspects.< Less

More > and training details. This includes specifics of diet, exercise, & grappling. However, he deviates from the norm in two important ways. First, he dedicates an unusual amount of his text to discussion (and derision) of methods and strategies which, though technically legal under boxing rules of the time, he considers “unmanly.” Second, he cites an earlier Wrestling text, Sir Thomas Parkyn’s “In-Play” for advice and description on performing some of the grappling and throwing which were part of orthodox boxing of the period. He includes in his text images of 9 techniques which he considers either confusing or foundational, rounding out his relatively short text with a recitation of Broughton’s rules which, like this manual itself, were authored before the adoption of the London Prize Ring rules of 1838.< Less
