Armed conflict has produced many of the great leaders in human history. Some fought purely for glory, others waged war out of desperation, and even more were driven by a sense of duty. Every leader has human qualities that transcend time and culture. The lessons taught, tactics used, and losses suffered stand as a testament to their lives and accomplishments. In his book, entitled History's Greatest Military Commanders, author Barry Linton covers these leaders and great military commanders in fascinating detail, highlighting their distinguishable backgrounds and origins.

good little history lesson of multiple generals from all times and nationalities, goes into details of key battles and is completely subjective. reader is a tad whistly
"OMFG! I CANT STAND IT!"
The story is good if you can ignore the whistling sounds the narrator makes every S Sound.
i cannot and couldnt pay attention to what was being said. i quit somewhere in chapter 3.
it was driving me ibsaine and I could only hear his whistling sounds which are louder than his reading.
i imagine it's a good book but just get someone else to read it!
