Wow! What an amazing exciting and thrilling book. After reading this book you will realise this man was the greatest military leader and tactician EVER. The thought processes, experiences and leadership skills of this man are extraordinary, his compassion and honour for the enemy as well as his a own troops was a rarity in the 14-18 war. If your boss at work is as useless as mine as most of the leaders in this country are, make them read this, they might learn something. You will also find out that alot of WWI was not just bogged down trench warfare but was fast paced movement. I see now why they still teach this book in military academies today. I'm not sure if he was helped to write this book but it is wonderfully written. DON'T BE PUT OFF if you are not interested in the military it is a fantastic adventure book as well. It starts with his experiences in the trenches around the Luxembourg region and moves through mountain warfare in Romania and the Italian border. Please read this, you will not regret it. It is one of those books that when you get near the end you slow up as you want to savour it as you know your next book will never satisfy you as this one does. BUY IT, BUY IT AND BUY IT.
