War: Principles & Formulas…

“A study of the principles of war will never provide a mathematical or intellectual formula for winning wars; but it will ensure that no single factor is omitted when one principle is being balanced against another. The decision itself is a test of leadership. Study provides the materials for inspection; the choice depends upon the genius of the commander.”

Lieutenant Colonel D.K. Palit (1953) The Essentials of Military Knowledge. New Delhi: Natraj Publishers.
