"[R]anges from medieval monastic communities, where literacy was the sacred monopoly of small elites, through the bustle of nascent capitalism and the polemics and printing presses of the Reformation, to that great watershed in popular education, the Industrial Revolution. This book is an object-lesson in the craft of the historian. From European recruitment papers, statistics, marriage registers and legal documents the author has isolated and reconstructed a crucial but neglected process of historical change -- the transformation of a world bound by custom, ceremony and spectacle into a sophisticated technical civilization under the rule -- and sometimes the tyranny -- of the printed word."

"The Crimea, the Boer War, the Somme, Tobruk, Singapore, Pearl Harbour, Arnhem, The Bay of Pigs: just some of the milestones in a century of military incompetence, of costly mishaps and tragic blunders. Are such blunders simple accidents -- as the 'bloody fool' theory has it -- or are they inevitable, caused by an incompetence which is itself an inexorable result of the requirements of the military system? In this superb and controversial book Professor Dixon examines these and other mistakes and relates them to the social psychology of military organization and to the personalities of some eminent military commanders. His conclusions are both startling and disturbing."
