Description:
A study of the land war in the North African and European theaters, as well as their chief commanders-- three men who also happened to be the most compelling dramatis personae of World War II. Supplemented by new primary source material, this book offers critical new interpretations of the Second World War as it was experienced by its three most flamboyant, controversial, and influential commanders-- and augments our understanding of each of their perceptions of war and leadership.
