The Folly of Generals (Hardback)
How Eisenhower's Broad Front Strategy Lengthened World War II
Imagine how many lives would have been saved had the war in Europe finished in December 1944 instead of five months later. In this book David Colley analyses critical mistakes made by the Allied supreme commander, General Dwight Eisenhower, in the last nine months of the war. He argues that had Eisenhower been more adept at taking advantage of several potential breakthroughs in the Siegfried Line in the fall of 1944 the war in the European Theatre of Operations might have ended sooner.
