    Only for eBook Readers!

    With Christmas almost upon us, some of you may be getting a new eReader from Santa and of course, many of you already have reading devices. I have been given 5 sets of eBooks introduced by Andy McNab but the books are not his - don't worry. What we have are 4 classic books on the Art of War by Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, von Clausewitz and Baron Jomini:


    The Art of War by Machiavelli
    “Machiavelli taught Europe the art of war; it had long been practised, without being known.”
    Voltaire


    The Art of War by Sun Tzu
    ‘Sun Tzu’s The Art of War is among the Greatest classics of military literatureever written.’
    General Alfred Gray, US Marine Corps



    The Art of War by Baron de Jomini
    “Jomini is rightfully entitled to a place on the level with the foremost makers of modern military thought.”
    General James Hittle, US Marine Corps



    ON WAR by GENERAL VON CLAUSEWITZ
    ‘Von Clausewitz is one of the great military writers.’
    Vladimir Lenin

    5 sets of these books are available and the entry form can be found here: Survey Monkey

    Competition will run until Sunday 29th December.

  2. Done, not worried about Sun Tzu's Art of War as I've already got that, it was given to me by the Marriage Guidance people :)
     
  3. But they are all avalable free! Can I have a Steve, sorry, Andy McNab set?



    Even if I don't get drawn out the hat?
