"Over 80 years since his death, Generalfeldmarschall Alfred Graf von Schlieffen remains one of Imperial Germany's most intriguing figures. During his 15 years as Chief of the General Staff, Schlieffen left his stamp not just on the Kaiserheer, but also on the Reischswehr and the Wehrmacht. Although he never wrote a comprehensive work of theory, Schlieffen's ideas have inspired countless books and articles - many of which argue that his military theories brought ruin to Germany and the rest of Europe in the First World War. Few other personalities from Wilhelmine Germany have provoked as much ink, or as much acrimony, as Alfred von Schlieffen." "This important new book makes some of Schlieffen's more important texts available to an English-speaking audience for the first time. Robert Foley provides translations of Schlieffen's staff rides and other publications, as well as some rarely seen selections from the archives. Each selection is fully annotated, putting the document into context for the modern reader. The texts reproduced here include 'On War of Today', 'Cannae', 'Million-Man Armies' and 'Schlieffen's Last Kriegsspiel'. The book also includes a section of contemporary photographs. This book will be indispensable reading for all serious students of German military history and the First World War and will also appeal to the informed general reader."--BOOK JACKET
