From the Back Cover:

What tactics did Montgomery employ to defeat Rommel at El Alamein? How did General Giap's Viet Minh troops inflict defeat on a French army at Dien Bien Phu, despite the massive artillery superiority of their opponents? What was the secret behind George S. Patton's masterly control of armoured units? In Great Commanders of the Modern World, Andrew Roberts has assembled some of our most distinguished historians (including such names as Michael Burleigh, Simon Sebag Montefiore and Richard Overy) to provide an authoritative account of the lives and careers of the 24 great military commanders of the period, from Erich Ludendorff to John Pershing, Heinz Guderian to Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ivan Konev to Moshe Dayan. As accessible and informative as it is rigorous and scholarly, Great Commanders of the Modern World is the perfect introduction to its subject for the general reader, but also a stimulating and thought-provoking read for those with greater knowledge of military history. Along with the other volumes in the Great Commanders series, it is an indispensable guide to the greatest generals the world has seen.
