Is there a "classic", or at least a decent, book on military strategy? When it comes to wargames, i tend to do what makes sense to me at the time, but i would be interested in reading an actual book on strategy (i.e. typical patterns of infantry/armor/etc.).

Strategy by B.H. Lidell-Hart springs to mind. It's long out-of-print though. Check your local library. Other "classics" might be Clausewitz' On War and of course Sun Tzu's Art of War. The latter two don't, of course, deal with modern weaponry. I'd recommend checking out Rommel's work: Infantry Attacks and the more-recently published The Rommel Papers, because it sounds to me like what you're after is more on the level of tactics, not strategy.

Matt, Try "The Western Way of War" by Archer Jones. It begins in ancient times and goes to the late 20th century. Jones covers the evolution of strategy & tactics by looking at things like leadership and technology. It is a thick, oversized, heavy book which can be found cheaply on-line. Finally, there are some great illustrations.
