This first volume examines the history, development and role of the position through 14 operational-level chiefs of staff, almost half of them German. Part One deals with the 19th century, from Napoleon's Berthier to Count von Moltke; Part Two covers nine First World War officers, from Erich Ludendorf, Hindenburg's chief of staff at Tannenburg, to the American James Guthrie Harbord, supporting General Pershing.
