Because war and religion are historically integrated and permeate the history of most peoples, it is of interest to examine the role of religion in the lives of military men. Great Captains of the Faith includes a synopsis of the lives and military activities of ten famous military leaders. These men should be remembered for their military genius - not for their sins. Because this synthesis singles out military leaders of the Judeo-Christian Faith, there are chapters describing, Faith, the Judaic Faith, the Christian Faith, and the Reformation with respect to their effect on war, the analytical thought process, and the role each played in the lives of these ten great captains. Maps and illustrations assist the reader in following the text and understanding the importance of terrain analysis and knowledge of the enemy. Every source is identified by notes at the end of the book.
