Notes, bibliography, index. "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."
