9780713450088: Someone Had Blundered...A Historical Survey of Military Incompetence

To achieve success, military operations need a mixture of luck and good management at many levels: one weak link in the chain can lead to the loss of thousands of lives. Incompetence amongst the military may be no more prevalent than in other professions, but because of its uniquely disastrous consequences, it is both more visible and more harshly judged. For similar reasons it is usually individual commanders who are identified with military disasters and are pilloried accordingly. In his lively and wide-ranging account of military incompetence since the earliest times, Geoffrey Regan is concerned to restore the balance by looking at the whole picture: not just the failures of generals on the battlefield but the part played by poor planning behind the lines and irresponsible politicking at the highest level.
