Masters of the Battlefield : Great Commanders from the Classical Age to the Napoleonic Era Hardback

Hardback

Description

In Great Commanders, Davis turns his attention to military leaders from throughout history who stand out for their abilities - indeed, individuals who were destined for success or even born to command, challenging the prevailing view that movements, rather than individuals, have determined the progression of history.

In short, this is unapologetically Great Man history.

Each chapter opens with a brief biography that reveals or outlines the subject's character, followed by an overview of the methods of warfare of his time.

A concise overview of each subject's military career leads to a more in-depth look at the battles that reveal precisely how each commander was able to achieve victory, often against great odds.

Finally, Davis analyzes each individual's contribution to tactical warfare and offers an assessment of how his personality shaped his leadership style.
