Two men came to personify Allied and German generalship in the
Second World War: Bernard Montgomery and Erwin Rommel. They fought
a series of extraordinary battles across several theaters of war
that established them as two of the greatest generals of their age.
Born four years apart, their lives were remarkably similar--from
their shared provincial upbringings to each nearly dying in but
emerging from the first World War with glowing war records. They
would begin to fight each other as divisional commanders in 1940
and as they came to prominence, first in North Africa, then at the
Normandy D-Day allied invasion.
Caddick-Adams tracks and compares their military talents and
personalities in battle. "Monty and Rommel" explores how each
general was raised to power by their war leaders, Churchill and
Hitler, and how the innovative military strategy and thought of
both permeate down to today's armies.
