Patton and Rommel served their countries through two World Wars. Their temperaments, both on and off the battlefield, were overwhelmingly contrary-- but their approach to modern warfare was remarkably similar. Written by a prominent military historian, this book takes a look at both figures, intertwining the stories of the paths they took and the decisions they made during the course of the Second World War-- and compares the lives and careers of two men whose military tactics redirected the course of history.
