During the Second World War, Great Britain, the United States and Germany each had one commander who stood out form the rest: Bernard Montgomery, George Patton and Erwin Rommel. These three were the greatest generals of the war.
In Masters of Battle, all three are put 'in the same ring' and allowed to 'go at it' against a backdrop of the great armoured battles of North Africa, the invasions of Sicily and Italy, the Normandy Landings and the push through France and Belgium into Germany.
Through the mutual respect of the arch-enemies Monty and Rommel, and the mutual animosity of the allies Monty and Patton, Masters of Battle presents the Second World War as it was experienced by its three most flamboyant, controversial and influential commanders.
