Instances in which one man can be said to have had a pivotal role in a great battle. Sturmpionier, Pavlov's House, The Biplane and the Battleship and Truly, this Man is the New Noah were excellent while my two favourite chapters were The Bicycle Blitzkrieg and The Loose Cannon of Yom Kippur. Also liked the way each chapter was opened with an appropriate quote from Clausewitz's On War.
