On War: The Best Military Histories by Rick Atkinson, Carlo D'Este, Max Hastings, James McPeherson, Allan Millet, Tim O'Brien, and Gerhard Weinberg
The surreal fiction of Tim O’Brien’s Vietnam is just pages from an in-depth look at General George S. Patton by today’s leading biographer, Carlo D’Este. Max Hastings and Rick Atkinson use their backgrounds to add a journalistic touch to modern studies of World War I and World War II, respectively. Gerhard Weinberg examines global leaders during World War II as Allan Millett discusses the developing technology that allowed them to further their causes. And James McPherson, the preeminent living Civil War scholar examines crisis in America with accessible and articulate literary skill.
This anthology provides just a sample of the remarkable works by these renowned authors, who will be read by military history enthusiasts and the general public for generations to come.
