About the Book

“Hanson narrates the success of three military campaigns – Epaminondas defeat of the Spartans in the 4th century B.C., Sherman’s march through Georgia and the Carolinas during the Civil War, and Patton’s race into Germany at the head of the Third Army in 1944-45. In Hanson’s view, the individual traits of spontaneity and creativity that are nourished in a free society are assets, not hindrances, in warfare.” -Booklist
