By Barry Strauss
Alexander, Hannibal, Caesar—each was once a grasp of warfare. each one needed to glance past the battlefield to come to a decision whom to struggle, while, and why; to grasp what victory was once and whilst to finish the struggle; to figure out tips to carry balance to the lands he conquered. each one basic needed to be a battlefield tactician and extra: a statesman, a strategist, a pace-setter.
Tactics switch, guns swap, yet battle itself continues to be a lot an analogous through the centuries, and an outstanding warrior needs to know the way to outline luck. knowing the place each one of those 3 nice (but fallacious) commanders succeeded and failed can serve a person who desires to imagine strategically or has to illustrate management. In Masters of Command, Barry Strauss explains the characteristics those nice generals shared, the keys to their luck, from ambition and judgment to management itself.
The results of years of analysis, Masters of Command is in line with surviving written records and archeological proof in addition to the author’s travels in Italy, France, Greece, Turkey, and Tunisia within the footsteps of Alexander, Hannibal, and Caesar.
