Beschreibung des Verlags

A. H. Atteridge penned many books on the subject of warfare, concentrating mainly on the Napoleonic period and the German army in the run up to the First World War. War Correspondent of the Daily Chronicle in the Sudan campaign of 1896, he was also special correspondent at manoeuvres of various foreign armies, and was an officer in the London Irish Rifles from 1893 to 1905. Some of the important military works written by him included Towards Khartoum, Wars of the Nineties, Napoleon's Brothers, Joachim Murat, and Marshal Foch. An acknowledged expert, his writing style is fluid and pacy without losing any of his authoritative knowledge.
In this volume, the author focusses on the celebrated Marshal Ferdinand Foch: Atteridge documents Foch’s rise from military theorist of high repute before the First World War to the pinnacle of command as the general in chief of the entire war effort. Not a dry analysis of dates and figures, the entire methodology of Foch’s theory of warfare is discussed; from the foundations from Foch’s time at the Ecole de Guerre to the application of them against the invading forces of Germany.
Still an excellent biography of the leader of the Allied Generallisimo.
