From the cover: Never before has the general history of warfare (not mere memoirs or military theory) been written by a professional soldier who has himself victoriously commanded great armies in the field.

We may not like war, but for that very reason we cannot afford to ignore it. As Liddell Hart has said, If you want peace, understand war. Nobody is better able to contribute to our understanding than Field-Marshal Montgomery. Throughout his career he was a serious student of military history, and in the research for this book he ensured that the historical aspect of his work was soundly based on the most up-to-date historical findings. He then brought to bear on military history the judgment and interpretation of a great master of war. Many consider Montgomery to have been the greatest British commander since Wellington.
