Not a bad book, but keep in mind that the author was the same guy who gave us Forrest Gump - and the book is published by National Geographic.

The most enjoyable book I have read in a long time.

You forget to realize that these three generals were the reason why World War 1 was won and including World War 2.

A great refresher of history.
