Fascist and Liberal Visions of War: Fuller, Liddell Hart, Douhet, and Other Modernists


In this ground-breaking study, Dr Azar Gat investigates the fascist background behind the ideas of the leading theorists of mechanized war in the first half of this century. He re-evaluates the contribution of B.Liddell Hart, presenting him as the pioneer of the modern western liberal way in warfare, a man who developed the theory of the tactical `cold war' in the decade before nuclear weapons became a military reality.
