In the Second World War, the United States, Great Britain, and Germany each produced one land-force commander who stood out from the rest: George Patton, Bernard Montgomery, and Erwin Rommel. All were arrogant, publicity seeking, and personally flawed, yet each possessed a genius for command and an unrivaled enthusiasm for combat. But their explosive relationships with one another rivaled the pyrotechnics of their tank battles in determining the conduct and outcome of the war.

In the first book of its kind, historian Terry Brighton brings all three men together against a backdrop of the great armored battles of the war. Brighton dug through archives in England, Germany, and the United States to find new primary source material and interpretations of how these masters of battle sought the fight, despised the politics, and captured their own glory.

Was Patton actually like George C. Scott's portrayal of him in Patton? Did Monty always steal thunder from Patton? How would the war have ended if Rommel had had more tanks? Brighton tackles these absorbing questions and more in a fascinating book that any student of history will savor.

    " Capitalized on a ton of research into the three most famous generals of WWII. Told a the story of the war through their eyes and added new insights into how outcomes were often decided based on the strong personalities of these soldiers. Reaffirmed my belief that Montgomery was a truly awful person. "

    " This was a great immersive history lesson, both rich in personality enough to be entertaining, and rigorous in including a variety of interpretations on points of debate, so that you don't feel spoon fed. I am not a WW II buff, but this was even more worthwhile than I hoped. "
