From: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: "Do Great Men Win Wars" Date: March 22, 2010 3:37:43 PM EDT To: H-NET Military History Discussion List <H-WAR@H-NET.MSU.EDU> Hi all: A young relative in England is doing a college essay with the topic of "Do great men win wars?" and asked me for sources that might get into this subject. He is going to concentrate on leaders during WWII (Hitler, Churchill, Stalin, FDR), and I have already suggested that he'll need to define "great" as a comparative criteria. Since the essay is due next week, I hesitate to recommend books that might have only snippets of discussion of leadership. Do any of you know of easily accessible books or articles that tackle the question, especially in a World War II context? (And hopefully helping my cousin with sources may lead to an interesting H-War discussion on great men winning wars!)
