I read the hard cover edition sometime around 1993. I remember changing planes at DFW when a grandmotherly lady ask me if I had learned anything from "at-a-la the hun". I chuckled and told her "yes, I had". And you would learn something too. Even after, what, 15 years, I recall this book. It is a simple read with a great underlying story.
It uses a historical context with a general understanding of the strategies of Attila the Hun in building a powerful nation of Huns, and then gets into details that are clearly the authors perceptions of how Attila implemented his strategies. You can see how this is simply a synthesis of popular strategy books that have preceeded this one.
