Any additional comments?
This was a great overview. I am a retired 30 military officer and war college graduate who still practices in national security issues. This audio presentation was an outstanding way to review and think anew about strategic principals.
It is also a good intro for new students (formal students or just learners for life) to introduce them to foundational pillars of strategic thinking.

What did you love best about Masters of War: History's Greatest Strategic Thinkers?
This may seem like a cliché, but what Carl Sagan did for science, Prof. Wilson has done for Strategy. I am a civilian with no military background. I found Prof. Wilson’s lectures interesting, well-structured, and informative. The lectures have a just the right balance of factual dissertation and storytelling to keep the listener engaged. These lectures have left me with a better mental framework for applying strategic thinking to my own decisions, and for understanding the actions of others on the larger world stage.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Masters of War: History's Greatest Strategic Thinkers?
Prof. Wilson’s attention to the importance of a back-and-forth dialog between civilian and military leaders actually changed my preconceived notions in that area.

A good series of lectures, charting the progress of military theory, with real world examples of ideas from long ago. I liked the delivery, which felt relaxed and was easy to listen to. Will want to hear more of the Great Courses, especially Prof. Wilson's Art of War lectures.
