New book, some shelf wear to cover, 224 pages. Napoleon said that the success of the coup de main depended absolutely upon luck rather than upon judgement. This must rank as one of his less considered comments: as this book makes plain, the military tactic of the sudden acquisition of a strategic objective can be - should be - clinically designed and ruthlessly attempted how-ever hurried its conception. Bryan Perrett now examines in accurate detail and exciting, atmospheric description, eleven examples of this battlefield manoeuvre which has often had telling effect on the campaign of which it has been part. From central europe in 1916 through the theatres of World War Two and Korea to the Vietnam conflict in 1965, each example portrays the many facets and dramas of land warfare.
