Masters of Command : Alexander, Hannibal, Caesar, and the Genius of Leadership Paperback
Alexander, Hannibal, and Caesar had to be not only generals but statesmen. And yet each was a battlefield commander, a strategist, a leader of men-in short, a warrior.
Tactics change, weapons change, but the ultimate purpose of war remains much the same through the centuries, and a great warrior must know how to measure success.
Publishers Weeklysaid: "No one presents the military history of the ancient world with greater insight and panache than Barry Strauss," and in Masters of Commandhe shows what these three great commanders can teach us today about ambition, leadership, branding, and more.
