Today's military strategists and tacticians may be familiar with the writings and teachings of Carl von Clausewitz, but The Strategy Makers: Thoughts on War and Society, 1650-1850 reintroduces readers to the lives and writings of those whose contributions to the study of war and society are just as important.

But why are we so indifferent, often oblivious, to the far greater number of casualties suffered by those we fight... more...

The seemingly endless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have renewed the age-old debate over what constitutes military victory.

"Don't forget your cotton underwear, girls!"Most books that look at the involvement of Australians in the Vietnam War rarely allude to the role of nurses.

The nurses... more...
