Yo!

A college fan of Diplomacy! Now about the "war" books, something like:

On War by Carl von Clausewitz
The Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi
The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli
The Art of War by Sun Tzu

So what else are there? Please do tell!

Ooh this is nice, thanks! At first I thought you were quoting a dialogue of somebody, ahaha.

The Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World: from Marathon to Waterloo (1851)
by Sir Edward Creasy

It's dated (duh...) and "Euro-centric" (also duh.....) and not very detailed as to troop movements and all that, but he was writing for the general public and not the military buff.

Still a good and entertaining read.....

I am the very model of a modern Major General
With information vegetable, animal, and mineral.
I know the kings of England and can quote the fights historical
From Marathon to Waterloo in order categorical......
