Part of an exciting new series, this heavily illustrated volume examines in detail, with insightful comment, the important commanders of all arms of service and incorporates all the major belligerent nations during World War II. An interesting introduction provides an overview of the ranks of the period, the structure of the armed forces, how commanders were trained and selected for leadership, and how promotions (even demotions) were carried out, in the field and by other means. It also looks at who controlled the armed forces and how political leaders interfaced with the military during the war.

Outstanding photos of 180 WW2 commanders, bland, superficial text, and high school reading level.
