    DescriptionAlexander, Hannibal, and Caesar had to be not only generals but statesmen. And yet each was a battlefield commander, a strategist, a leader of men-in short, a warrior. Tactics change, weapons change, but the ultimate purpose of war remains much the same through the centuries, and a great warrior must know how to measure success. Publishers Weekly said: "No one presents the military history of the ancient world with greater insight and panache than Barry Strauss," and in Masters of Command he shows what these three great commanders can teach us today about ambition, leadership, branding, and more.

    Review quote
    "Alexander, Hannibal, and Caesar--this is a book on leadership like no other. A rare combination of stirring dialogue, masterful ancient scholarship and sage advice--both lessons and warnings. Just as Asian corporate planners read Sun Tzu, Western entrepreneurs and strategic thinkers will want to read "Masters of Command"."--Robert L. O Connell, author of The Ghosts of Cannae: Hannibal and the Darkest Hour of the Roman Republic"
