He described his experiences of the day in his unpublished memoir. His detailed report is extremely evocative, giving a clear sense of what he lived through that day.

His entry for 6 June begins with a description of the conditions on his cross Channel passage:. We tried to have a peep over the hatch to see if we could spot anything but the air was thick with cordite and smoke Everyone was now quiet and we kept looking at each other and making efforts to smile, but it was all very forced and tense though we all knew that we should be all right once we started to land and had something to occupy our minds; more than one sent up a few quick prayers to him above His account continues, describing the part he played right up to V E Day.
Jan Bloch. It was the personal copy of the renowned military historian and thinker Sir Basil Henry Liddell Hart The autodidact polymath Jan or Ivan Bloch , who was born to a poor Jewish family in Radom, Poland, made his fortune as a railway promoter in Tsarist Russia. Although he had no military experience except as a close observer of the Russo-Turkish war of , his experience as an entrepreneur and engineer of railways led him to a fascination with warfare.
This arose for two reasons. Railways had become crucial for military transportation and logistics by the middle of the 19th century.

In Tsarist Russia, with its imperialist designs on the Caucasus and Central Asia, and with its unruly Polish and Baltic possessions, this was as true as anywhere else. Secondly, the task of constructing and managing railways, often to exacting military specifications, required military-like discipline and planning. In addition, the casualties which could be inflicted on the attacking army would be so high as to compel the mobilisation of vast numbers, often of inferior quality.gigicreations.com/wp-includes/platte/1198.php
But that was not the only problem. The result was a six-volume work which was first published in Russian in , quickly followed by translations in varying numbers of volumes in French, German, Polish and English. As the confidant of three Tsars he has been credited with persuading Tsar Nicholas II to convene the abortive Hague Peace Conference in , Bloch hardly lacked opportunities for publicity, and he enjoyed a wide readership.
Soldiers also read him. Soldiers pointed to Japanese tactics in the Russo-Japanese War of as proof of the relevance of the offensive although, generally, European commanders did not attempt to replicate Japanese tactics in the First World War, because they contradicted European doctrine. For this reason, the military high commands in Europe had all persuaded themselves, by the eve of the First World War, that a future war would not be prolonged. When war happened, both Bloch and his military critics were proved partly wrong.
Soldiers and civilians coped with varying degrees of privation for longer than anybody thought they could. In this sense, Bloch has become the posthumous obituarist of the birth-pangs of total war.
