Details

William Van der Kloot examines the experiences of seven future national leaders during the First World War. Adolf Hitler served on the Western Front for four years Charles de Gaulle was bayonetted and captured at Verdun Benito Mussolini was so badly wounded that he was discharged as a hero Gustav Mannerheim was a cavalry commander who fought on the Eastern Front Mustafa Kemal Ataturk commanded a division at the Battle of Gallipoli Harold Macmillan was wounded at Loos and again at the Somme and Herbert Hoover although a civilian organized humanitarian relief in German-occupied Europe especially Belgium. Combining information gleaned from memoirs diaries biographies and regimental histories this book illustrates how these experiences formed them into the men remembered by history.
