This book addresses the difficult question of why some men fight well in war and others do not. The influences on a man in battle come from within and from without. With this in mind Dinter examines military history, anecdotal evidence, the psychology and sociology that affects men and women confronted with the daily prospect of death. He draws some fascinating conclusions, involving recommendations for new methods of personnel selection and new tactics, training and military education. This book, an insight into timeless human strengths and weaknesses, is of great value to all military leaders and staff officers. However it is also of importance to all who are interested in the behaviour of small groups and individuals under extreme pressures.
