A Knowledge of Strategy & Grammar…

“The rules of strategy are few and simple. They may be learned in a week. They may be taught by familiar illustrations or a dozen diagrams. But such knowledge will no more teach a man to lead an army like Napoleon than a knowledge of grammar will teach him to write like Gibbon.”

George Henderson (1854 to 1903)

Colonel George Francis Robert Henderson CB, was a British Army officer and military author. He saw service in India, Egypt, and South Africa (Second Boer War).

Probably best known for his masterpiece ‘Stonewall Jackson and the American Civil War’.
