This is a study of Hitler's inner circle of commanders which aims to show how strategic decisions were carried through the ranks to the battlefield in World War II. It examines top-level characters - Kesselring, Manstein, Model, Student and Rommel, and also those of middle rank, who, often under duress, saw that instructions were carried out. Studying sixteen diverse characters, each with different responsibilities, the book provides an informative account of command, soldiering, military structure and dictatorial control.
