about

This book comprises six lectures delivered under the auspices of the Lowell Institute by Brevet Lieutenant-Colonel Theodore Ayrault Dodge in Boston in January, 1889.

Each lecture focuses on a historically significant leader—namely Alexander, Hannibal, Cæsar, Gustavus Adolphus, Frederick, and Napoleon—and “aims to indicate briefly what we owe to the great captains, and to draw an intelligible outline of their careers.”

Dodge has utilized an abundance of sources of information, from Arrian’s Anabasis of Alexander to Jomini’s Life of Napoleon, and the book is illustrated with 21 maps.
