Reviews

An instructive series of portraits of five military outsiders called in to turn defeat into victory. Kirkus Reviews It is not really news that Victor Davis Hanson has written another outstanding and eye-opening book. He has done that before and repeatedly, on a variety of subjects. The Washington Examiner Students of military leadership will be intrigued by Hanson's astute set of cases. Booklist Mr. Hanson's fluency with a broad range of historical epochs, which has made him one of his generation's most notable historians, is on full display in The Savior Generals. -- Mark Moyar Wall Street Journal An engaging book in which the action on the battlefield is placed within a larger perspective of the politics and the societies that go to war, and the qualities of the generals who fight those battles. The Baltimore Sun Provides widely applicable insight regarding the dynamics of leadership and consensus, and how those dynamics can change the destiny of nations. Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Hanson's penetrating insights into each of the generals and the wars they fought will both astound and educate and leave the reader with a deep appreciation for the manifold difficulties of command in any era. Simply put, this is an excellent work from start to finish. With 'The Savior Generals,' Hanson has once again proven why he is one of America's foremost military historians. -- Cody K.

Max Boot on THE FATHER OF US ALL Enthralling ... One closes this book wishing that its final verdict was as well known as more familiar tenets of Greek wisdom. Christopher Hitchens on THE WESTERN WAY OF WAR Vivid ... ambitious ... Challenges readers to broaden their horizons and examine their assumptions... [Hanson] more than makes his case. NYTBR on CARNAGE AND CULTURE Hanson performs the difficult feat of not talking down to readers while still presuming no prior knowledge of the war. Washington Post on A WAR LIKE NO OTHER
