Military Mavericks: Extraordinary Men of Battle
David Rooney. This is a study of heroes who broke the rules. Shows how often the day is won by sheer determination to succeed, despite the odds, despite the criticism of peers & elders. It is invariably the maverick who turns every challenge to an opportunity, leads from the front, & wins the unwinnable. Here are 12 stories of military mavericks, from Alexander the Great & Stonewall Jackson, through Garibaldi & Lawrence of Arabia to WW2 stalwarts such as Heinz Guderian & George Patton. Each had flaws that would have brought down a lesser man. Each faced strong opposition from their own side, but they all proved their bravery & leadership in battle. Reveals by how much, & how often, success in battle depends on the presence of just one man. B&W photos.
