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 qmadeq by their war leaders, Churchill and Hitler, and how the thoughts of both permeate down to today's armies.aaThe Panzer Legions, A Guide to the German Army Tank Divisions of WWII and Their Commanders (Praeger, 2000) aaRommela#39;s ...
