A Platonic philosopher that flourished in the first century AD, Onasander was the author of ‘Strategikos’ (The General), a short yet comprehensive work on the duties of a general. Recognised as a classic in Antiquity, it comprises 42 chapters, dealing in a plain style with the recommended morals and social and military qualities and attitudes expected of a successful general. Most subsequent military writers are indebted to Onasander and during the Renaissance he enjoyed a remarkable popularity. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Onasander’s complete extant works, with illustrations, a concise introduction and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
