Patton [a biography by Alan Axelrod ( Recording )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 74 libraries worldwide
"George S. Patton embodied contradiction: a cavalryman steeped in romantic military tradition, he nevertheless pulled a reluctant American military into the most advanced realms of highly mobile armored warfare. An autocratic snob, Patton created unparalleled rapport and loyalty with the lowliest private in his command; an outspoken racist, he led the only racially integrated U.S. military unit in World War II; an exuberantly profane man, he prayed daily and believed God had destined him for military greatness; a profoundly insecure individual, he made his Third Army the most self-confident and consistently victorious fighting force in the European theater. From Patton's boyhood battling dyslexia and becoming an avid reader, to his leadership strategies that modernized the U.S. army, Alan Axelrod delivers a fascinating account of Patton's fascinating life and legacy" -- from publisher's web site.

Alexander the Great is considered one of the most successful commanders of all time and was known to be undefeated in battle. He is mentioned in the Bible as well as the Qur'an. When asked to name other great military leaders, Caesar reportedly said Alexander was the only great one. Born in 356 b.c., the son of Philip II of Macedonia, Alexander the Great was educated by Aristotle, became a consummate horseman, and commanded a wing of his father's army in the victory over the Thebans and Athenians at the Battle of Chaeronea--all when he was still a teenager. By the time of his death at age thirty-two, he had united Greece and amassed an empire that stretched from the Adriatic Sea to the Indus River and included all of Persia and most of Egypt. His influence on cultural and political history remains awe-inspiring to this day. In this biography, Yenne discusses his leadership, strategy, and legacy.
