Mr. Williams is interested not only in military skills but in the temperament for command and, most of all, in moral courage.

Each of these men, he writes, represents a particular and significant aspect of leadership, and together they show a progression toward the final type of leadership that had to be developed before the war could be won. Most important, each one illustrates dramatically the relation between character and generalship.

Williamss absorbing investigation offers a fresh perspective on a subject of enduring interest.
