Editorial Reviews


"An excellent book that should be read and digested by every professional soldier. Works of this nature represent the 'book' referred to by the late von Schlieffen, and it is imperative that we all continue to increase our knowledge of the art and science of war."--Armor

"Citino is insightful, provocative, and unstinting in his analysis of doctrine. . . . Soldiers who take the time to read Robert Citino's book carefully will find themselves sometimes irritated, sometimes embarrassed as they recall their own shortcomings, but always stimulated by Citino's fast-paced narrative and logical argument."--Parameters

"A superlative and important book, well written, exhaustively researched, and exquisitely balanced. The author is a skilled military historian who brilliantly examines the operational art from its conceptual beginnings through its successes and failures from the 1930s to the 1990s. . . . Mr. Citino is unsparingly critical when he needs to be of the U.S. Army. . . . Essential reading at all American war colleges."--Washington Times

"Vivid, incisive, laced with trenchant observations, Blitzkrieg to Desert Storm is a remarkable--even brilliant--study of war at the operational level, emphasizing the importance of intangibles and the elusiveness of decisive victory."--Andrew J. Bacevich, author of American Empire

"An important addition to the current debate over what direction U.S. military doctrine should take, this book brings back into focus the central role of operational-level warfare in military thought."--James S. Corum, author of The Roots of Blitzkrieg

"A superb survey by a sophisticated military historian."--Jonathan M. House, author of Combined Arms Warfare in the Twentieth Century

"Interesting, informative and insightful."--Andrew F. Krepinevich author of The Army and Vietnam --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
