Masters of the Battlefield by Julian Thompson

Written by one of Britain's most successful living battlefield commanders, Masters of the Battlefield examines the lives and tactics of 30 of the world's greatest military leaders. Arranged chronologically, each general is represented by a colour-illustrated double-page spread containing a biography, a campaign map and a specially commissioned, large-format, full-colour battle map of his most famous victory, which can be pulled out and unfolded to reveal the individual genius of each commander. Bringing to life the victorious exploits of history's most famous military leaders, this book will appeal to military history enthusiasts and amateur psychologists alike.
