Masters of Battle Summary


Masters of Battle: Monty, Patton and Rommel at War by Terry Brighton

In the Second World War, Great Britain, the United States and Germany each produced one land force commander who stood out from the rest: Bernard Montgomery, George Patton and Erwin Rommel. These three armor-plated egos were the greatest generals of the war, and theirs was a very personal contest: the clash of mighty armies perceived as a bout between three men. All three were arrogant and flawed, yet with a genius for the command of men and an unrivaled enthusiasm for combat. All had spectacular success on the battlefield. But their explosive relationships with each other and with their political masters rivaled the pyrotechnics of their tank battles in determining the conduct and outcome of the war. "Masters of Battle" presents the Second World War as it was experienced by its three most flamboyant, controversial and influential commanders.
