Leaders in War: From the French Revolution to the Cold War
Distinguished Lehrman Fellow at N-YHS Lecture
Andrew Roberts

(Members $32)


In culmination of his four-year lecture series, historian Andrew Roberts reviews what we’ve learned about the secrets of war leadership exhibited by Napoleon Bonaparte, Winston Churchill, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Charles de Gaulle, Horatio Nelson, Margaret Thatcher, and George Marshall. Is war leadership unique, or might these leaders have something in common, techniques that can be transferred from age to age, country to country, war to war?

Andrew Roberts, visiting professor in the War Studies Department at King’s College, London, is the author of Napoleon: A Life.
