FLESH AND STEEL DURING THE GREAT WAR The Transformation of the French Army and the Invention of Modern Warfare


Delivered in an easily read style, Goya gets at the heart of how armies learn from previous experience. Not only does he recount what changes occurred, but more importantly what were the factors that drove change and those which impeded it. While change occurs during peacetime, in the end, however, it is the brutal experience of war that drives relevant reforms. A worthy addition to any Great War bookshelf.
