How Great Generals Win

Author: Bevin Alexander

Narrator: James Slattery

Unabridged: 9 hr 24 min

Format: Digital Audiobook (DRM Protected)

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Published: 06/30/2010

Genre: History - Military - Strategy

Synopsis

Throughout history, great generals have done what their enemies have least expected. Instead of direct, predictable attack, they have deceived, encircled, outflanked, out-thought, and triumphed over often superior armies commanded by conventional thinkers. Collected here are the stories of the most successful commanders of all time, including Hannibal, Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Stonewall Jackson, Sherman, Rommel, Mao Zedong. Each has demonstrated, at his own point in history, the strategic and tactical genius essential for victory. Ironically this virtue does not come naturally to military organizations, since more often than not, the straight-ahead, narrow-thinking soldier will be promoted over his more lateral-minded, devious counterpart. Yet when the latter gains control, the results may be spectacular.
