The Challenges of High Command free pdf The command and control of military operations is a difficult art. "The Challenges of High Command" explores British ideas of how this should be done and, with the guidance of some of Britain's leading military historians, looks at the practicalities of British experience in World Wars I and II. The contributors cast new light on themes as diverse as the trench warfare of World War I, the conduct of the Gallipoli and Norway campaigns, and the command performance of Bomber Harris and Bill Slim. The volume concludes with a major review of how military operations should be conducted in present-day political and technological conditions and includes an informal and frank commentary by General Sir Mike Jackson on his experience in Bosnia and Kosovo.
