'Routledge has a truly impressive back catalogue of military history books, and it is very good news indeed that a number of them are once again in print. The authors represented include some of the biggest names in the field over the last half century - Corelli Barnett, Brian Bond, Christopher Duffy, and John Gooch to mention just four. This initiative will make some gems of scholarship available to a new generation'. Gary Sheffield, Military Historian
