In this unique anthology, current or former American combat commanders write with clarity and honesty about key battles that demonstrate important aspects of the art of war. Written with ground-level familiarity which can only come from experience this invaluable collection brings together stories of many well known major battles as well as clashes that have been forgotten, lost from popular memory, until now.
Among the contributors are well-known Presidio authors such as John Antal, Daniel Bolger, Jim McDonough, and Robert Leonhard.
Editor Richard Hooker Jr. is an army lieutenant colonel currently assigned to the Pentagon as special assistant to the secretary of the army and a noted writer on military affairs.
