Military campaigns, pivotal battles and extraordinary leaders have collectively shaped the course of history and in this fascinating book, author Tom Quinn examines some of the most remarkable campaigns, incidents and characters from the earliest recorded histories to the second Gulf war. These strange but true stories include figures both famous and obscure, from Wellington, Churchill and Napoleon to maverick soldier 'Popski' Peniakoff, who commanded a company of British soldiers in North Africa during the Second World War. Known as "Popski's Private Army," this motley bunch were highly unorthodox but very effective in raiding Axis supply columns and destroying Luftwaffe aircraft. Then there's the unusual Russian warship Novgorod; which was completely circular, and the Victoria Cross winner who survived completely unscathed against all odds, not to mention the old colonel who went into battle with his trousers down and the woman who fought as a man for nearly twenty years without being discovered. Military's Strangest Campaigns & Characters makes for bizarre yet absorbing reading, highlighting the origins of strange regimental traditions, heroic and ridiculous soldiering, and the folly of commanding officers throughout the ages.
This book is a comparative study of military operations conducted my modern states between the French Revolution and World War I. It examines the complex relationship between political purpose and strategy on the one hand, and the challenge of realizing strategic goals through military operations on the other. It argues further that following the experience of the Napoleonic Wars military strength was awarded a primary status in determining the comparative modernity of all the Great Powers; that military goals came progressively to distort a sober understanding of the national interest; that a genuinely political and diplomatic understanding of national strategy was lost; and that these developments collectively rendered the military and political catastrophe of 1914 not inevitable yet probable.
