5.0 out of 5 stars Invincible Generals - an introduction . 10 Jan 2006
This book is a "must purchase" for all interested in the early Millitary campaigns from 1594 - 1815 within the European theatres of war.This book helped myself to begin formulating most-if not all my history degrees.The book is informative{covering all the changing tactics through out the ages} & should not put off any novice readers{the book is a very easy read!}into the subject.I also would like to say this is one of the Millitary history books that I have read in the last 14 or so years that still keeps me reading over & over again. 10 out of 10 ......... Buy this !!!!!!!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great analysis 17 Feb 1999
By K. Wofford - Published on Amazon.com
An excellent study of exactly why these four generals were so successful on and off of the battlefield. Particularly emphasizes the importance of the cult-of-personality so prevalant in history's greatest generals, while still showing you enough of the army details to let you imagine you're charging across a ditch at Lutzen.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book 19 Jan 2000
By David Bonine - Published on Amazon.com
If you sorta like Military History, than you should absolutely buy this book. The book captures the thrill of victory, like never before. If you are like me, and had never heard of Gustavus Adolphus before, than this is an excellent book to read, as a stepping stone to learning more about these men.
