The Oxford Book Of Military Anecdotes, Max Hastings, Oxford, 1985. First Edition. Black cloth boards, gilt front and spine titles. Unclipped jacket. Volume and dustjacket in fine, unread condition.  The anecdotes are arranged in chronological order by which they were said or written. The first anecdote being quoted from the Bible. If anecdotes are marginal notes on the pages of history, these will delight any reader who has ever been moved or entertained by the condition of the soldier. Few fields of human endeavor have inspired so many memorable anecdotes as warfare, from the Bible and Livy through Gibbon and Froissart, to the imperial wars of the nineteenth century and the world conflicts of the twentieth. Max Hastings, a leading military historian and war correspondent
