ANTOINE HENRI DE JOMINI THE ART OF WAR PDF

This particular translation, in fact, was made at West Point in , as America was in the second year of the Civil War, and other renditions of Jomini had been studied by West Pointers before that time. A curious mixture of dated material and what are likely timeless truths much like Mahan. As Jomini himself notes, technology and tactics change; people, politics, and strategy tend not to. Being an translation, the language is perhaps a little more florid than a modern translator would make it; but this is very much the kind of translation that had a direct effect on American military thought. The French Revolution changed all that; armies became national. Revolutionary France became a "nation in arms" to defend their Revolution against the kings of Europe.

Summary of the Art of War

Russian Biographical Dictionary Overtures had been made to him, as early as , to enter the Russian service, but Napoleon, hearing of his intention to leave the French army, compelled him to remain in the service with the rank of general of brigade. For some years thereafter, Jomini held both a French and a Russian commission, with the consent of both sovereigns. However, when war between France and Russia broke out, he was in a difficult position, which he dealt with by taking a noncombat command on the line of communication. That was tantamount to deserting to the enemy and so it was regarded by many in the French army, and by not a few of his new comrades.
