From the Battle of Hastings in 1066 to the American Revolution and Waterloo, from the Civil War battlefields of Chancellorsville and Gettysburg to the struggle f or G az a i n 19 17, and the Allied breakout from the Anzio beachhead in Italy during World War II, these are critical strategic turning points where you can choose the next move. (The book) lays out the opposing forces in comprehensive maps and o rde rs of ba tt le , r evealing the historical backgrounds, the terrain and armaments, the personalities, and the weaknesses of the leaders of both sides - then pauses at crucial stages to explain the options open to each commander. The problems fa cing ge ner als at wa r ar e presented with realism and detail. Here is Wellington at Waterloo, choosing whether to attack Napoleon's underprotected right flank; here is Lee at Chancellorsville, weighing the merits of the aggressive battle plan offer ed b y hi s fr iend and fell ow general, Stonewall Jackson. To enter these pages is to marshal famous armies and to become, for the moment, the master of their fates."
