Synopsis

Opposing Genius by Mark Jones, John G. Bentley

Two men, each from contrasting backgrounds, were by very different paths to rise to positions of extraordinary power. Figures who possessed skills and abilities that they used in different ways, one that brought about mass murder and death, the other who gave hope and inspiration to the Free World. So what was it that made them who they became? History reminds us that in our own lives we face challenges and choices, yet if we ignore the past and fail to learn from it we may end up repeating the same mistakes. The strategic battles of Churchill and Hitler explain why the Twentieth Century casts such a shadow over our own times. This is an epic tale, one that is on the one hand horrifying and on the other uplifting. The names Hitler and Churchill will be forever linked; what follows will seek to explain why. Under their respective commands, two leaders, Hermann Goering and Hugh Dowding implemented tactics and directed air battles that would potentially shape the Western World for the next thousand years. Their genius at a tactical level cannot be underestimated.
