Description
 
Geoffrey Regan (au). Throughout history warfare has been littered with appalling blunders leading to humiliating defeats & unnecessary loss of life. In this groundbreaking account of 30 such military blunders, Regan considers why they occur. Sometimes the responsibility lies with leaders, such as Redvers Buller, the most incompetent general of the Boer War; others, such as Field Marshal Montgomery at Arnhem in 1944, fail as a result of their ambition. Failure can also be the result of poor planning, or the underestimation of the enemy, as in the Battle of Isandhlwana when the Zulus massacred Lord Chelmsford’s troops. Technology is another cause, such as the NATO bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Kosovo. Color & B&W illustrations.
