The Time of the Generals
Author: Frederick M. Nunn
Publisher: U of Nebraska Press
The quarter century from 1964 to 1989 was the "time of the generals," the most clearly defined era of military rule and influence in the history of Latin America. The effects of this rule were most evident in Argentina, Brazil, Peru, and Chile, where French- and German-style military professionalism developed into professional militarism. Frederick M. Nunn shows that the mentality of Latin American generals is typical of a worldwide military ethos but that its application is unique in the context of individual countries. In detailing the pervasiveness of this ethos worldwide, Nunn enables a better understanding of the willingness of Latin American military leaders to intervene in government, and of their activities once in power.

Generals And Generalship
Author: Field-Marshal Earl Wavell
Publisher: Pickle Partners Publishing
Field Marshal Wavell was one of the most successful British Army commanders of the Second World War, often given the toughest assignments, usually greatly outnumbered and with few resources. In this short volume he shares the distilled wisdom on the qualities, mental, moral and political that are necessary for successful leadership. A long forgotten classic of military thought and leadership. “These lectures by General Wavell [...] show very clearly how he and the army under his direction have gained their great victories in Africa and why they will gain others. For these lectures, though delivered over two years ago, could only have been delivered by a man capable of winning and keeping the confidence of all men in all walks of life. They deal with the relationships between man and man, on which must be founded both the success of an army and the success of a whole nation at war. I am glad indeed to think that they will have a wide audience, and particularly among soldiers, for whom they have deep lessons.”—From Foreword by Field Marshal John Dill
