Four of the most important World War I commanders-in-chief helped determine its outcome--and, by extension, the course of the 20th century. Here are the stories of Colonel-General von Molke, who attempted to defeat France in a mere 6 weeks; Admiral Sir John Jellicoe, who struggled unsuccessfully to crush the German High Sea Fleet; General Pétain, whose inaction led the French troops to mutiny; and General Ludendorff, who mounted a titanic German offensive...that failed.
