This is a visual guide to the tactics, campaigns, and genius of the greatest military commanders in history. From Alexander the Great's conquest of the known world right up to the generals leading today's campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq, "Commanders" casts new light on the leaders who have forged history on the battlefield. Packed with special illustrations and photography, battle maps and artefacts, explore the lives and conquests of over 240 commanders, with in-depth profiles on 21 key figures, such as Julius Caesar, Napoleon and Nelson. Discover more about their enemies, from Pompey and Boudicca to Marshal Ney and Kutuzov, revealing their defining moments and key battles. "Clash of the Commanders" features show how one commander triumphed and another failed, with timelines plotting the key moves on both sides. Quotes from the commanders themselves, features on their personal effects, weapons, vehicles and portraits, all bring the lives and careers of these commanders to life.
