A History of Men in Battle Presented by Frederick Forsyth Commander
Armies fight properly only if properly led. A commander is the brains and often the heart of an army and so crucial to its success or failure, but the qualities required of the good commander go beyond mere professional skills. He must have courage, a capacity to communicate and inspire and, above all, the force of will and calm of mind to ride out the storm of uncertainty and anxiety which battle arouses. The world over, armies take great pains to turn their officers into good commanders. Written by JOHN KEEGAN Photography IAN STONE
