The author does a commendable job in inserting the reader into the minds of the opposing commanders in each of the presented situations. He offers good analysis into how each battle formed and progressed, the tactics and maneuvers involved in each conflict; and expecially offers well-formed insights into how the outcomes might have been changed, if different military procedures had been used. A good, solid read!
