Description
Imagine the impact on the outcome of the Battle of Gettysburg, and the Civil War, if Robert E. Lee had listened to General Longstreet and withdrawn to higher ground instead of sending Pickett uphill against the entrenched Union line. Or if Napoleon had avoided making disastrous tactical errors at WaterlooŚmistakes he had never made before. Had Lee, Napoleon, or even Adolf Hitler read Sun Tzu's The Art of War, a Chinese book on strategy written 2400 years ago (but only available in English in recent decades), our world might be a very different place, says Bevin Alexander. Here he applies Sun Tzu's straightforward maxims to ten battles and campaigns of the modern era, with chilling results.

"On display is Alexander's penchant for counterfactual history, which will pique military-history readers as Alexander imparts different scenarios for how the Revolutionary War, Waterloo, the Civil War, WWI, WWII, and the Korean War could have turned out."ŚBooklist
