This is a translation of Jeremy Black's work in English: Great Military Commanders and their Campaigns, to which the following refers: A distinguished international team of military historians provides an enthralling overview of the careers and leadership of the world's greatest military commanders on land, at sea and in the air, from Cyrus the Great in 6th-century BC Persia to Vo Nguyen Giap in 20th-century Vietnam. Truly global in scope, the book offers a 2,500 year history of warfare uniquely told from the viewpoint of the leading protagonists, shot through with informed insights about changes in the nature of war, tactics and strategies through time and varied issues of command. Richly illustrated with photographs, contemporary portraits and battle scenes, and images of weapons and uniforms, and featuring more than 120 specially commissioned full-colour campaign maps, battle plans and 3-D battle reconstructions.
A very heavy book which requires courier delivery, it is packed with fascinating information, profusely illustrated with maps, diagrams, photographs and pictures, the majority in vivid colour. In near fine condition.
REMINDER: this edition is in German, thus appealing to those fluent in German, students of German or anyone keen on a challenge.
