Some people are blessed with extraordinary talents. Adolf Hitler and Winston Churchill were two such men, and each was to shape the destiny of their nations. One was to become the very symbol of evil, whilst the other, seventy years on, is still admired and respected throughout the world. Their names seem to radiate the very worst and the very best of the human spirit.
Two men, each from contrasting backgrounds, were to rise to positions of extraordinary power. The strategic battles of Churchill and Hitler explain why the Twentieth Century casts such a shadow over subsequent generations. This is an epic tale, one that is on the one hand horrifying and on the other uplifting. The names Hitler and Churchill will be forever linked; what follows will seek to explain why.
Under their respective commands, two leaders, Hermann Goering and Hugh Dowding implemented tactics and directed the world’s leading Air Forces in battles that would potentially shape the Western World for the next thousand years. Their genius at a tactical level cannot be underestimated.
This book investigates how genius can be found in both strategy and tactics, in both ‘the big picture’ and in the daily horrors of war.
