About the Book
Sometimes complex or difficult, often intellectually brilliant and physically brave, the military commanders of the 19th and 20th centuries uniformly had the confidence to make the difficult decisions that could carry a vital battle or turn a campaign. They were great leaders of men who had the lives of millions and the fates of nations in their hands. Collected here are the obituaries of some of recent history's finest military leaders--among them Napoleon, Montgomery, Patton, and MacArthur--each reproduced in facsimile of its first printing. Together these lives tell stories of grand strategy, tactical boldness, courage and ingenuity under fire, and an enduring commitment to selfless service.
