His significance is amplified further in this book, in which John D. Hosler examines his heretofore overlooked contributions to the ideals and practice of medieval warfare. This book surveys an array of military topics present within John's extant corpus, including generalship, strategy, tactics, logistics, military organization, and training; it also collates John's military lexicon and charts the influence of classical texts upon his conceptualization of war. John of Salisbury, it argues, deserves inclusion in the roll-call of military theoreticians and writers of pre-Reformation Europe."@en ;
