Pre-eminent war historian John Keegan sets out to answer the question, how much does military intelligence matter to victory? By examining case studies from Nelson's pursuit of Napoleon's Fleet across the Mediterranean in 1788 to the Battle of the Atlantic in 1940, Keegan gives us a new history of war through the prism of intelligence.

    This book is a list of historical war events. Chapter 2 alone is hours of listing of which army was doing what, an indeciferable listing of generals, territories and battles with no attention given to the intelligence behind war.
