Illustrated with 24 plates of maps and diagrams and 13 photographs “Originally published in Germany in 1955, and in England and the United States in 1958, this classic memoir of WWII by a man who was an acknowledged military genius and probably Germany’s top WWII general, is now made available again. Field Marshal Erich von Manstein described his book as a personal narrative of a soldier, discussing only those matters that had direct bearing on events in the military field. The essential thing, as he wrote, is to “know how the main personalities thought and reacted to events.” This is what he tells us in this book. His account is detailed, yet dispassionate and objective. “Nothing is certain in war, when all is said and done,” But in Manstein’s record, at least, we can see clearly what forces were in action. In retrospect, perhaps his book takes on an even greater significance.”-Print Ed.

While studies of the American Civil War generally credit Robert E Lee with military expertise, this account argues that Stonewall Jackson was superior strategist who could have won the war for the South: Had Lee accepted Jackson's plan for an invasion of the North, the South might have surprised and dismayed the Union forces into defeat. Using primary sources, the author reconstructs the battles that demonstrate Jackson's brilliance as a commander.

Since the early stages of World War II, militaries in general, and the U.S. Army in particular, have studied the German way of war, specifically as practiced in the 20th century. While acknowledging that Germany—and before that nation came into existence, Prussia—produced some excellent armies, major problems with the German way of war must not be ignored. Even the casual observers should have noted that, despite the military prowess of Germany, it lost both of the major wars of the 20th century. This Letort Paper, authored by Dr. Samuel J. Newland, explores the reasons why a nation with such a strong military reputation was unable to win its wars and achieve its goals. He emphasizes that military power, tactical and operational brilliance, and victories in the field can easily be squandered if a nation has failed to set achievable goals and develop strategies to reach them. This failure, which led to Germany’s defeat in these wars, should not be lost on modern nations as they proceed into the 21st century.—Douglas C. Lovelace, Jr., Director, Strategic Studies Institute

Marshal Georgi Konstantinovich Zhukov, hero of Leningrad, defender of Moscow and Stalingrad, commander of the victorious Red Army at Berlin, was the most decorated soldier in Soviet history. Yet for many years Zhukov was relegated to the status of "unperson" in his homeland. Now, following glasnost and the fall of the Soviet Union, Zhukov is being restored to his rightful place in history. In this completely updated version of his classic 1971 biography of Zhukov, Otto Preston Chaney provides the definitive account of the man and his achievements. Zhukov’s career spanned most of the Soviet period, reflecting the turmoil of the civil war, the hardships endured by the Russian people in World War II, the brief postwar optimism evidenced by the friendship between Zhukov and Eisenhower, repression in Poland and Hungary, and the rise and fall of such political figures as Stalin, Beria, and Krushchev. The story of Russia’s greatest soldier thus offers many insights into the history of the Soviet Union itself.

What can WWII teach us? Is it possible to see Hitler as an efficient manager? What would today’s business schools have to say about Churchill’s management style? What was going though the minds of leaders when they took decisions that led to thousands of deaths? How did they manage the resultant stress? What strategies were adopted to win battles and campaigns? This book is a history of WWII seen from a completely different perspective – that of the businessperson. During 1939-45, “managers” of a different kind were facing immense challenges – an unprecedented crisis, struggle for world markets, new technologies being used on a mass scale. How they coped and succeeded during this period offers unique and valuable lessons for today’s business managers and executives. In doing so, the author analyses WWII’s most famous campaigns, including Barbarossa, Stalingrad, D-Day and Pearl Harbour
