A must have for my book collection

The most awesome book on tactics and strategy in one book!!!

My jaw dropped when i first read this book, i never new something this detailed on war existed! A must read for war gamers, these strategies can be used for a variety of games out there. Nicely done format, awesome commentries....words cannot explain....
