Overview

Hoiback, an officer in the Royal Norwegian Air Force who holds a master's in history from the U. of Glasgow in Scotland, has written an analysis of the command and control policies during two crises to show how such policies play a critical and often under-appreciated role in events. The first crisis centers around the circumstances in March 1918 that led to the British turning over control to the French at Doullens and the altered account of events later given by the British field marshal. The second study analyzes the events that led Norway to join WWII. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
