Praise for Andrew Roberts and Leadership in War

An understated treasure of 2019 . . . [that] distills some of the insights Roberts has developed in more than a dozen classic works of history and biography, all in a slim volume that might be read over an afternoon. . . . Roberts’s chapter on Hitler is a tour de force of historical portraiture.” 
—The National Review

“Andrew Roberts provides lovely overviews of the careers of both Marshall and Eisenhower, among others. . . . [Leadership in War] has the enjoyable feel of a lively dinner table conversation with an opinionated guest.” 
—The New York Times Book Review

“Roberts delves into the experiences of wartime leaders to produce lessons for heads of business. . . . illuminating . . . These portrayals were originally delivered as lectures by Roberts, a prolific historian of World War II and biographer of Napoleon and Churchill. The profiles of Napoleon and Dwight D. Eisenhower are the most salient for business readers, but it is not difficult to find insight in nearly all of them.”

“Elegantly balances fact, thought and fresh, clear prose. . . . Roberts has set a high bar for future historians of mankind’s greatest bloodbath; Roberts splendidly weaves a human tragedy into a story of war’s remorseless statistics.”
The Wall Street Journal
“With his new book on the Second World War, Andrew Roberts has not only written the single best history of that conflict but has also claimed his place as one of our top historians.”
—The Daily Beast
“Entertaining, even addictive . . . Roberts writes with great vigor, style, and fluency.”
—The Sunday Times (London)
