Description
Why do military commanders, most of them usually quite capable, fail at crucial moments of their careers? In this intriguing investigation, historian Robert Pois and educational psychologist Philip Langer study eight cases of military command failures, from Frederick the Great at Kunersdorf to Hitler's invasion of Russia, taking a number of psycho-historical approaches to shed light on the decision-making of commanders during war. Here too are Napoleon in Russia; George McClellan's Peninsular Campaign; Robert E. Lee at Gettysburg; John Bell Hood at the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee; Douglas Haig and the British command during World War I; and "Bomber" Harris and the strategic bombing of Germany.
