A masterly portrait of six men - Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Horatio Nelson, Napoleon Bonaparte, Ulysses S. Grant and Georgi Zhukov - whose military genius changed the course of world history. Concentrating on one battle in particular for each commander, and using computer graphics to help explain the course of events, this penetrating study brilliantly illustrates the thinking, method and individual dynamism behind the great military campaign.

A little old but quite good; focuses on one key battle rather than zipping through the whole career of a commander. One can only wish that other great commanders got the same treatment. The audio was rather weak - I had to ramp up the volume just to hear it.
