Description
GREAT CAPTAINS UNVEILED analyzes the careers of six of the greatest military leaders in history. These include Jenghiz Khan, founder of the Mongol Empire, and Subutai, his chief general--who between them nearly conquered the whole medieval world; Marshall Saxe, 18th century French military prophet; Gustavus Adolphus, founder of modern war; Wallenstein, the German enigma; and General Wolfe, whom Hart terms "grandsire of the United States."

After he was gassed in WW I, Liddell Hart became chief historian and strategist for the English army. He developed the concept of blitzkrieg. Rejected in his own country, it was adopted by the Germans. He survived this irony and turned increasingly to writing as a means of publicizing his views.
