Abstract:

This student monograph traces the early writings of B.H. Liddell Hart in order to establish a basis for evaluating his continuing relevance as a theorist of war. Particular attention is given to that dimension of war now called the operational level. the paper examines Liddell Hart's theoretical, historical, and reform-oriented essays through 1933 with primary emphasis given the first. The paper is not intended to be a biography and its scope is limited to theoretical adequacy. The study concludes that Liddell Hart's writings are internally coherent and generally consistent with experience, notwithstanding some very superficial reading of Clausewitz and sometimes, of history. It argues that his theoretical writings continue to have relevance to contemporary operational problems. -- Abstract.
