Commands: Divided or Undivided?

“Nothing is so important in war as an undivided command; for this reason, when war is carried on against a single power, there should be only one army, acting upon one base, and conducted by one chief.”

One of the maxims from Napoleon’s Maxims of War.

With notes by General Burnod, translated from French by Lieutenant General Sir G.C. D’Aguilar, C.B. and published by David McKay of Philadelphia in 1902.
