Description
Two men came to personify Allied and German generalship in World War II: Field Marshals Bernard Montgomery and Erwin Rommel, both revered as two of the great commanders of their age. Born four years apart, their lives were remarkably similar, from their shared provincial upbringings to each nearly dying in but emerging from World War I with sterling war records. They would first face each other as divisional commanders in 1940 before taking charge of their respective armies, first in North Africa, then at the Normandy D-Day allied invasion. In his insightful dual biography, Peter Caddick-Adams tracks their records and compares their military talents and personalities in battle.

"Bernard Law Montgomery and Erwin Rommel are ideal subjects for a comparative military biography. Without choosing between them, Caddick-Adams compares Rommel to a bold 'modernist painter' and Montgomery to a painstaking '17th-century minimalist.' It is a striking, appropriate conclusion to an excellent book."Publishers Weekly
