Editorial Reviews


"The education of the Israeli Officer is strongly grounded in the study of military history. In its human dimensions. leadership of men in battle has changed little over the millennia so that the study of history's great commanders has much to teach the officer of today's Israeli Defense Force. Dr. Gabriel's Great Captains of Antiquity provides the modern officer with a penetrating insight into the character, psychology, and abilities of six of the greatest combat commanders in history. Gabriel writes history of the most valuable and pragmatic sort, history from which a new generation of combat commanders may learn much. This book is a valuable teaching tool for military colleges and will surely be widely read by serious students of military history."-Colonel Micha Popper, Ph.D. Commandant, 1986-1990 Israeli Defense Force Leadership School

Format: Kindle Edition
The publisher has overpriced this book into obscurity. To be realistic it should be half the price or lower. Ebook licenses are not the same as the licenses of regular books. This kind of behavior leads to pirating and the elimination of the book as a seller on the ebook trade. If not for its eprice I would rate this book a "4," due only to it being a bit dry and at times (although rarely). Gabriel's sources questionable.
