Command

Throughout the history of warfare, individual commanders have dominated the battlefield and in so doing decided the fate of nations. From the warlords of the ancient world through to the architects of the blitzkrieg and beyond, the Command series looks at how these great leaders adopted revolutionary technology, battlefield tactics and training methods, or simply inspired their troops through their leadership skills to win victory.

These are not just simple biographies. Instead they provide a critical examination of each commander’s key victories and his notable adversaries, illustrated with detailed maps, tactical diagrams and uniform artwork, explaining how and why these great leaders were able to carve their names into the annals of military history.
