Command & leadership: the world wars and beyond

  • Hitler as a military leader by Richard J Evans. By his own account a genius, was Hitler chiefly responsible for Nazi Germany’s military defeat?
  • Masters and commanders by Andrew Roberts. Anglo-American grand strategy in 1941-45 was not the creation of the famous generals.
  • The German supreme army command by Michael Epkenhans. How much power did Germany’s generals actually wield at home and on the front in 1914-18?
  • Rise, fall, and rise of Douglas Haig by Meleah Hampton. Judgements about the British leader have dominated scholarship on the First World War.
  • The outsider as insider by Andy Simpson. Sir John Monash was responsible for the Australian Corps’ greatest victories on the Western Front.
  • Blamey. Macarthur and Curtin by Karl James. How these men direct much of Australia’s efforts in the Second World War.
  • Who called for a ceasefire? Gallipoli 1915 by Mesut Uyar. The brief truce at Anzac was needed, tricky to negotiate, and raised issues of pride.
  • Command in contemporary coalitions by John Cantwell. Some issues remain the same as in the past, but some are new.
  • Chauvel in Palestine by Peter Burness. Sir Harry Chauvel led the Desert Mounted Corps to victory in the Middle East.
  • Collection insights by Chris Goddard. Commanders are not so different from the lower ranks, after all. Many of them were just as interested in collecting souveniers.
  • Communication and control at Amiens by Shane Casey.
  • Spirit of the Squadron by Melissa Cadden. Squadron Leader John Francis Jackson DFC.
  • The Last Post: Major General William Holmes CMG DSO VD 1862-1917.
