Description:
"Why do military commanders, most of them usually quite capable, fail at crucial moments of their careers? Robert Pois and Philip Langer -- one a historian, the other an educational psychologist -- study seven cases of military command failures, from Frederick the Great at Kunersdorf to Hitler's invasion of Russia. While Pois and Langer recognize the value of psychological theorizing, they do not believe that one method can cover all the individuals, battles, or campaigns under examination"--Dust jacket.
Frederick the Great at Kunersdorf, August 12, 1759 -- Napoleon in Russia, 1812 -- McClellan's flawed campaign : the wounded ego -- Lee at Gettysburg : the failure of success -- Franklin, Tennessee : the wrong enemy -- Beyond conventional historical explanations : the British military in World War I -- Winston Churchill, Arthur Harris, and British strategic bombing -- Stalingrad : a ghastly collaboration between Hitler and his generals.
