Subtitled, "Ten British Commanders Who Shaped The World". From the bestselling author of "Rifles", comes the bold and remarkable lives and battles of ten of Britain's greatest generals. All ten of these generals, from Wellington to Montgomery, revealed either a brilliant ability or a fatal flaw. The story of whether they succeeded or failed depended largely on their abilty to work within Britain's Parliamentary democracy and against opponents who had the advantages lent by their autocratic regimes.
