Training for War encapsulates one hundred years of the history of Headquarters 1st Division and the Deployable Joint Force Headquarters.

Like any campaign, however, it holds lessons for the contemporary student of strategy, tactics and history.Greece presented singular geographic difficulties for the defending forces, its mountainous defiles dictating the distribution of ports, road and rail routes. The primitive state of the national infrastructure did little to help a long-term defens... View more info
