Product description

Review

Meticulously researched and full of revelations, this is a fascinating read. (Sun)

Leadership in War is an understated treasure of 2019...a tour de force of historical portraiture. (Barnaby Crowcroft National Review)

Leadership in War has the enjoyable feel of a lively dinner table conversation. (Thomas E. Ricks New York Times)

A condensation of a wonderful series of lectures Mr Roberts delivered to the New-York Historical Society ... Among military historians, Mr Roberts is Britain's crown gem, and his pithy insights compiled in 'Leadership in War' reflect decades of diligent, patient study. (Jonathan W. Jordan Wall Street Journal)

illuminating experiences are presented in easily digestible form in Andrew Roberts's new book, Leadership in War, a collection of nine portraits of wartime leaders, from Napoleon Bonaparte to Margaret Thatcher. These portrayals were originally delivered as lectures by Roberts, a prolific historian of World War II and biographer of Napoleon and Churchill. The profiles of Napoleon and Dwight D. Eisenhower are the most salient for business readers, but it is not difficult to find insight in nearly all of them (Daniel Akst Strategy & Business)

Book Description

A comparison of nine leaders who led their nations through the some of greatest wars the world has ever seen and whose unique strengths - and weaknesses - shaped the course of human history.
