On the professional side the service is obvious, since before the last war the weakness of the American like the British Army, a weakness inevitable, given our iso lation, lay in the absence of adequate study of the higher branches of military science and thus the ah sence of such a body of highly skilled professional soldiers, as constituted the French or German General Staff. The present volume is a. Clear evidence that American officers themselves have voluntarily under taken to make good this lack.
On the non-professional side and for the general reader, the service is hardly less considerable, since it supplies the least technically informed with a simply comprehensible explanation of things which almost every one has struggled to grasp and visualize during the last six years extending from the battle of Marne in 1914 to that of the Vistula in 1920.
