Overview

Warfare has been described as man’s second-favorite pursuit: it has without doubt played a defining role in the history of the world.

Victory: 100 Great Military Commanders introduces one hundred of the greatest leaders in the history of warfare.

From Leonidas of Sparta, doomed hero of the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC, to Colin Powell, architect of the 1990 Gulf War strategy, the great commanders of history are profiled, and their most significant battles are analyzed.

Ranging in scope from the strategic level of army commanders and emperors to the tactical and operational levels of captains of single ships and leaders of individual units, Victory examines the achievements of some of history’s greatest military commanders.

Whether defenders of their own lands, or conquerors of the lands of others, the commanders profiled in this book represent the peak of military genius.
