Customer Review

on 4 September 1999
It has been several years since I read this book, and while the details are fading, the overall impression remains vivid. A theme running through the book is why a soldier would commit the seemingly irrational act of remaining on a battlefield, where a person could get killed. Keegan finds that the reasons have changed through time, and posits that one of the challenges leaders in modern warfare face will be getting their troops to fight rather than hunker down for the duration.
_The Face of Battle_ is, or at least was fairly recently, required reading for the U.S. Army Command and General Staff Course.
