*,* This is the text-book of instruction in the German cavalry, and comprises all the details connected with the military duties of cavalry soldiers on service.

The great interest that students feel in all the German military methods, wilL it is believed, render this book especially acceptable at the present time.

*»* The authorship of this book was erroneously ascribed to the renowned Count Von Moltke, but there can be little doubt that it was written under his immediate inspiration.

An authorised and accurate Translation of

STUDIES IN LEADING-TROOPS. By Col. Von Verdv Du Vernois. Translated by Lieut. H. J. T. Hildvard, 71st Foot. Parts I and II. Demy 8vo.

Notice.—The German Publishers of this work desire to make it known that the author protests against an edition of Part I. which is on sale in England, and which is both an inaccurate and unauthorised translation.

%* Gen. Beauchamp Walker says of this work:—"I recommend the two first numbers of Colonel von Verdy's 'Studies' to the attentive perusal of my brother officers. They supply a want which I have often felt during my service in this country, namely, a minuter tactical detail of the minor operations of the war than any but the most observant and fortunately placed staffofficer is in a position to give, I have read and re-read them very carefully, I hope with profit, certainly with great interest, and believe that practice, in the sense of these 'Studies,* would be a valuable preparation for manoeuvres on a more extended scale."—Berlin, jfune, 1872.
