ABOUT THE BOOK

War brings out the very best and worst in people, although, frankly, it's usually the latter. But for all our thousands of years of practice at this most dangerous art, there is precious little evidence that we're either outgrowing it or getting any good at it. It is an occupation filled with heroism, genius, hubris, idiocy, and blind panic, all bought on at least in part by large measures of astonishingly good and bad luck - and they're all here in Charge! This is not a book filled with battle diagrams swarming with arrows or 100,000-word descriptions of the tactical basis for the Pastry War. It is a book about the more minor tragedies and triumphs that go to make up the big picture - toilets that sink U-boats, unsporting attacks on Christmas day, armies that stop for tea, bombs on renegade balloons, drunk generals, blind kings, blind drunk generals, circular warships, and all the joy and misery that such things bring with them. And an interesting bit about the Pastry War.
