This exciting new series takes a fresh approach to the great battles of World War II, examining them through the decisions, dilemmas and disasters of the generals on both sides of conflict. We explore their moves and countermoves as they attempt to outwit and outfight each other. The battles featured in the series - Singapore, El Alamein, Kursk, Stalingrad, Midway and The Bulge - are key turning points in the progress of the war, and the generals featured include some of the most charismatic military leaders of all time: Rommel, Model, Montgomery, Chuikov, Yamashita and Von Manstein. In this contest of skill, bluff and counterbluff, the lives of thousands of men, their own reputations and those of their political masters are at stake.
