Product Details


“One of the most distinguished American historians of WWII returns with an outstanding parallel biography of George Patton and Erwin Rommel. The research is thorough, the quality of the writing superb…Showalter ranks as a scholar who has done them justice, making two complex men and a vast panorama of military history remarkably accessible for experts and lay readers alike.”Publishers Weekly

“A smooth, very accessible narrative that is jam-packed with enough interesting insights to keep anyone’s inner scholar happy…Both Rommel and Patton come across as surprisingly thoughtful soldiers who were also lead-from-the-front hard-chargers…It is a good story, and the quality of the writing makes it even better. It is vivid, vigorous, laced with unforgettable metaphor, alternately funny and moving.”World War II Magazine

“A distinguished American scholar of World War II gives us an outstanding parallel biography.”—Booklist
