The Reith Lectures 1998 - an account of the Allied invasion of France from D-Day to the liberation of Paris.
The subject of the Reith Lectures is war - its origins, its history and its future. War has afflicted the life of mankind in this century as it has done no other. War, always a scourge, has become a menace that threatens the end of human existence.
As a military historian John Keegan has the qualities of the best commanders, broad strategic grasp combined with insight into the human fibre of the battlefield, and an eye to what the lessons portend.
