Sessions Part 2. Op Art of War.


Operational Art of War. Two titles have exposed me to some major clarity over the evolution of the Operational Art of War. Napoleons Last Victory by Epstein and Command in War by Van Creveld go to great lengths to expose the history and use selected conflicts and an examination of Napoleons innovations and Moltkes systemization of them via the concept of the General Staff. Great stuff.

This video is a quick chat about how we intend to explore the topic. Which if you are an avid war gamer should be on your list to understand as deeply as you can as it drives how armies have fought since the early in the 19th Century.

I may have been away for 20 years but I am going to get caught up on my reading, exposure to concepts and excellent titles!
