This was a fascinating look at the development and execution of national strategy in Russia up until WW I.

Probably one of my most favorite historical books ever. The political and strategic details of Russian wars and the leadership decisions behind them are amazing. The book discusses all wars and leaders from 1600 until WWI and why Russian leaders chose to stay out of some wars going on in Europe, the reasons for choosing the side to enter on in the conflict, when to enter the conflict, and why the troops/strategies succeeded in working or failed.
