Den græske i Rom bosatte (opr. gidsel) historiker Polybius (2. årh. f. Kr.) skrev Roms historie fra 1. Puniske krig 264 f. Kr. til 3. Puniske krig 146 f. Kr. J. C. de Folard (1669-1752) fransk officer deltog fra 1688-1713 i alle Ludvig 14.'s krige, dernæst for Malta mod tyrkerne og tilsidst for Karl 12. af Sverige til 1718 og i Spanien 1719. Gennem hans lange karriere dannedes hos ham ideer og systemer indenfor taktik, strategi etc. som han beskrev med stor opmærksomhed til følge og talrige skrifter for og imod ham udkom de følgende år. Hans første værk "Nouvelles Decouvertes sur la Guerre" 1724 om Polybius( KGB har 2. udgave 1753 og findes i supplement (bd. 7) af "Histoire de Polybe" og på tysk i "Geschichte des Polyb" bd. 7). "Histoire de Polybe" bd. 1-6 udkom Paris 1727-30 med en fransk oversættelse og i slutningen af hvert kapitel Folards kommentarer, forslag, ideer og sammenligninger fra hans egne oplevelser i felten. Dette medførte så store diskussioner, at han ved 6. binds afslutning forbødes at videreføre værket, hvorfor supplementet(bd. 7)først udkom Amsterdam 1753. KGB har 2. hollandske eftertryk 1-7 1753 (Specialsamlingen har 1. 1729-30,1753); på tysk bd. 1-7 1759-60 (Specialsamlingen også tysk udgave 1755-59) - endvidere kommentarerne alene og forkortet "Abregé des Commentaires.." 1-3 1754 af "M", af hvem også haves "Reflexions critiques sur les Differens Systemes de Tactique de M. de Folard" 1756. Af modstanderne haves: Anonym "D"(Savornin - svejsisk general i hollandsk tjeneste):"Sentimens d'un Homme de Guerre sur le nouveau Système du Chevalier de Folard" 1733 (også i førnævnte supplementer bd. 7); anonym "Le Main de Maitre"(Frederik 2. den Store af Preussen):"L'Esprit du Chevalier Folard" , tysk "Kern aus .." i udgaver 1760 og 1761; C. Guischardt: "Memoires Militaires sur les Grecs et le Romains" 1758. Af tilhængerne haves: Lo-Looz: "Recherches D'Antiquités Militaires" 1770
