The first comparative biography of two of the most charismatic, and strategically important, military leaders of the Second World War.This is the story of two men with electrifying personal qualities born around the same time, who between them altered our understanding of leadership in battle.The book traces Montgomery and Rommel's lives from their provincial upbringing, through to facing each other across the trenches in the First World War, to North Africa and Europe in the second. Both were on the periphery of the military establishment. Both were in part creations of the propaganda of their own and that of their superiors.

And he explores their natural instinctive feel for combat -- the German term for this (there is no direct translation) is fingerspitengefuhl.This ground-breaking work is both scholarly and entertaining and marks the debut of a major new talent in historical biography.
