The works of Hans Delbruck
 
Does anyone know the titles of each of Delbruck's volumes of his magnum opus History of the Art of War? Is there a variation between the names of the titles of the hardcover and softcover English translated versions? I am attempting to collect all four hardcover volumes. Thus far I have Antiquity, The Germans and The Middle Ages. The paperback volumes are labeled Warfare in Antiquity, The Barbarian Invasions, Medievel Warfare and The Dawn of Modern Warfare. My question is, are they all different books?:weird:

I have in paperback the four volumes (four books), and the four, in order, are as you state in your last sentence.

The titles of the paperbacks seem to be about the same subject as the titles of the German originals:
Antiquity (Persian wars to Caesar)
Germans (Germans and Romans up to the beginning of the Middle Ages)
Middle Ages (Charlemagne tp to the late Middle Ages9
Modernity (Renaissance up to Napoleon)

Yes, they're different. I own all but the barbarian one, great books aren't they?

I would like to know the chapters in the table of contents for The Barbarian Invasions and Medievel Warfare so I may compare them against those of The Germans and The Middle Ages. I wonder how close they are to one another.
