Spartacus, Attila the Hun, Richard the Lionheart, Cortes, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Napoleon: the courage, ambition and military genius of these six men have brought them almost legendary status, but their personal character flaws and the human cost of their achievements make them more ambivalent figures. In his exploration of the psychology of great warriors, the author probes the mixture of qualities that enabled this sextet of leaders both to inspire their troops and to deal with simultaneous personal, military and political stresses.
