Product Description

Two men came to personify generalship in the Second World War: Bernard Montgomery for the British and Erwin Rommel for the Germans. In the span of a few short years, they fought a series of extraordinary duels across several theaters of war. Ever since, historians have assessed their outstanding leadership, personalities, and skill. Monty and Rommel is the first comparative biography written of these two extraordinary soldiers. It explores how each was "made" by their war leaders, Churchill and Hitler, and how the thoughts of both permeate down to today's armies.

"Highly engaging." —The New Yorker

"A terrific book, and well worth reading carefully. Unlike most military history, it has a certain novelistic depth." —The Daily Beast

Peter Caddick-Adams has been a professional military historian for over twenty years and also served for thirty years in the British Army. He was twice deployed on operations as the UK's official historian in Bosnia and Iraq.
