Where have all the heroes gone?

From the high seas at Trafalgar to the Normandy beaches, the course of history has been changed by military mavericks who have led from the front. In twelve riveting pen portraits, bestselling historian Robert Harvey explores the minds and the actions of such men, including Clive of India, George Washington, Horatio Nelson, Field Marshall Montgomery and George Patton.

In an age of backroom generals who command far behind troop lines, it is often forgotten that wars have been won or lost by the personality and leadership of an individual commander. Harvey investigates what made these military commanders different - charismatic leaders of men, rational under fire, unafraid to improvise or lead their men into victory against the odds.

About the Author

Robert Harvey is a former member of the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, was assistant editor of The Economist, and foreign affairs leader writer for the Daily Telegraph. His books include, the highly acclaimed The Wars of Wars, Liberators and A Few Bloody Noses.
