“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.”― Sun Tzu, The Art of WarStrategy Six Pack 5 presents a smart sextet of tactical texts:A Treatise on Tactics by Francis J. LippittA Tale of the English Civil War by G. A. HentyGenghis Khan by Jacob AbbottThe Boer War by Arthur Conan DoyleMorgan's Raid by Basil W. Duke, Orlando B. Willcox & Thomas H. HinesGaribaldi by Elbert HubbardFrancis J. Lippitt’s A Treatise on Tactics is a detailed, sophisticated mid-Victorian survey delineating trends in military thinking as relates to the three branches of Infantry, Artillery and Cavalry. Morgan’s Raid by Basil W. Duke, Orlando B. Willcox & Thomas H. Hines – three participants of the famous Civil War skirmish – is a forgotten military classic and includes the raid, capture and escape of Confederate general John Hunt Morgan and his troops, known as Morgan’s Men. Evidently Sherlock Holmes’ creator Arthur Conan Doyle had a lot to say about the Boer War. By the end of hostilities in 1902, his book The Boer War (originally published as The War in South Africa, Its Cause and Conduct) had been published 16 times, with each edition revised by Doyle. The mystery maestro brings the same analytical skills displayed in his fiction to this definitive look at the 1899-1902 conflict. There is also G. A. Henty’s richly descriptive novel A Tale of the English Civil War, Garibaldi, a biography of the Italian general, and Genghis Khan by Jacob Abbott, a look at the life of the founder and Great Khan of the Mongol Empire.Illustrations include:King Charles I of EnglandThe Battle of Marston Moor, 1644Oliver CromwellThe 1st Khagan of the Mongol EmpireGenghis Khan entering BeijingJohn Hunt MorganThomas H.
