What are the parallels between making war and doing business? What ideas can civilian managers glean from their military counterparts? Lyle, in this entertaining book, indicates more than a few. While designed to entertain professional managers, the general reader can find much of interest- it would be invaluable to aspiring managers. Behind military success lie feats of leadership, organization, planning, control, innovation, even company politics...

The author describes in lively fashion examples from Europe and America, from naval and military actions, and from all historical periods: Alexander, Hannibal, Marlborough, Nelson, Lee, Harris, Montgomery, Spruance - all faced differing managerial situations, all confronted challenging problems, all exercised authority when failure could mean death.

War is the oldest of managerial exercises. Here in this lightly written book are concepts for the thoughtful business manager and the industrialist, for the company director and the civil servant, as well as lively descriptions of historic dramas for the general reader.
