This is an auction for THE DECISIVE BATTLES OF THE WESTERN WORLD, by J F C Fuller.

Three hardback volumes:

* Volume One: From the earliest times to the Battle of Lepanto

* Volume Two: From the Defeat of the Spanish Armada to the Battle of Waterloo

* Volume Three: From the American Civil War to the end of the Second World War review:

"General Fuller's analysis of decisive battles and their effects is one of the classics of military history. Fuller was well qualified as a military analyst, being one of those who, during the First World War, saw the significance of the tank and the development of blitzkrieg. His experience tells him that no general, no matter how brilliant, is infallible, and that military campaigns are often catalogues of mistakes on both sides. That doesn't mean that Fuller didn't have his heroes (Napoleon was one), but he certainly realised that they weren't perfect. Fuller manages to avoid the trap that British establishment figures fell into after the war of thinking that Churchill was a god: he is extremely critical of both Churchill and Roosevelt, whose decisions he believed extended the war by some time and led to the Russian triumph in Eastern Europe and the Cold War. The book ends with a fairly accurate prophecy of how the Cold War would develop - Fuller died long before this became obvious. The developments he did not foresee were the ability of guerrillas and minor powers to hold out against the major nations - Vietnam and Nicaragua for the US, Afghanistan for the USSR - and the rise of China."
