Commanders of World War Two
Book Description HTML
The author approaches this subject on several levels: grand strategy, the difficulties of coalition warfare, the personalities of the commanders (some of whom disliked each other more than they did the enemy) and analysis of the major battles. Recognising that wars in the last analysis are decided by the commanders, he describes the characteristics and fighting power of the combatants. This is a penetrating study and an essential contribution to the understanding of the nature of warfare and an invaluable work of reference for the whole family.
