Michael Howard, one of the great military historians, gives Emile Simpson‘s War From the Ground Up about 10 thumbs up in a new review, calling it “a work of such importance that it should be compulsory reading at every level in the military; from the most recently enlisted cadet to the Chief of the Defence Staff and, even more important, the members of the National Security Council who guide him.”
