Jacques Antoine Hippolyte de Guibert Bibliography

Essai général de tactique, (General Essay on Tactics) 1772
A huge literary success, the Essay was translated into all major languages (including Persian). Its theories of warfare were put into practice by Napoleon’s revolutionary armies. Guibert was received by both Frederick II of Prussia and Joseph II of Austria.

The popularity of the Essay was due in part to its Introduction, in which Guibert argued for the cessation of abuses in all departments of State. In Paris the book was kept on the Index Expurgatorius of the Government for over two years and could only be read in contraband copies imported from Holland.
