9780140114065: The Mask of Command

A wide-ranging, forceful, and fascinating analysis of generals - who they are, what they do, and how they affect the world we live in. Its central argument is that, like warfare itself, generalship is a cultural activity, providing a key to understanding a particular place or era, as much as it is an exercise in power or military skill. Other books by the same author include: "The Face Of Battle", "Who's Who In Military History" and "The Nature of War".

Product Description:

The Mask of Command

Review:

"The brilliant, vivid pictures of each subject are interspersed with reflections on the relation between society and the use of force. The framework of four masks gives the author the opportunity to display not only his encyclopaedic knowledge of military history, but also his sparkling literary skill."--Field Marshal Lord Carver, "Sunday Telegraph"
