Peter Tsouras brings 4,000 years of military history to life through the words of more than 800 soldiers, commanders, military theorists and commentators on war. Quotes by diverse personalities – Napoleon, Machiavelli, Ataturk, 'Che' Guevara, Rommel, Julius Caesar, Wellington, Xenophon, Crazy Horse, Wallenstein, T.E. Lawrence, Saladin, Zhukov, Eisenhower and many more – sit side by side to build a comprehensive picture of war across the ages.

Broken down into more then 480 categories, covering courage, danger, failure, leadership, luck, military intelligence, tactics, training, guerrilla warfare and victory, this definitive guide draws on the collected wisdom of those who have experienced war at every level. From the brutality and suffering of war, to the courage and camaraderie of soldiers, to the glory and exhilaration of battle, these quotes offer an insight into the turbulent history of warfare and the lives and deeds of great warriors.

A remarkable collection of quotations from commanders, soldiers, military theorists, war commentators, across 4,000 years of military history. Some quotations will be very familiar but most will be new to the majority of readers and all are fascinating. – Very Highly Recommended

Julian Stockwin

If you are like me and enjoy quotations, this book is a must have! Coming in at 10" x 7" and comprising over 570 pages, this is quite a weighty tome and not recommended for the bedside table. It is ideal the military historian and researcher alike, although a model could be made with a hand-engraved quote added to it's base to add a little interest - especially if entered in competitions or exhibitions. I have enjoyed reading this book and found all the usual suspects; SunTzu, Carl von Clausewitz, Winston Churchill, Arthur Wellesley, Robert E. Lee and Dwight D. Eisenhower as well as several lesser known contributors.

I rate this book very highly and recommend it to all of you historians

Excellent 5/5

Army Rumour Service (ARRSE)

An utterly amazing compendium of military quotations.

Books Monthly

This is a great book to dip in and out of, and I’m sure you’ll all find some old favourites and discover some new ones. It is also a great resource to history teachers (and teachers in general), writers (not only of stories with military or action subjects), historians and those interested in such topics, fans of general knowledge, and people who love quotations and are forever looking for new sources and collections.

Without a doubt, however, we are faced with a book that will be continuously browsed and consulted by the military historian and the enthusiast.

On The Old Barbed Wire

This is one of those luxurious books that keep eyeing you from the bookshelf and tempting you to dip into its massed ranks of quotations. It has been well curated so that it never reads as a list. My favourite is of course Napoleon; “The knowledge of higher leadership can only be acquired by the study of military history and actual experience”. I rest my case, and heartily recommend this volume.
