"A master of narrative history." (Kirkus Reviews)
"It is salutary to be reminded in this powerful study how close Hitler came to winning in 1940....An impressive study...[written] with elegance and panache." (The New York Times)

Other books handle the host of details surrounding these events, so John Lukacs decided to focus only on the two key personalities driving them, their differences, similarities, and the fine points within their characters that lead them to make the decisions that would decide the state of world's affairs in those days. It is these fine insights provided by Lukacs that makes this book a rewarding experience. Having both read the text and listened to this audio version, I can highly recommend this book to those that are interested in a thorough, intelligent analysis of these two indomitable mindsets.

What would have made The Duel better?
After listening to William Shirer's Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, this is so disappointing. Rambling and even the reader (who does such a good job with Rise and Fall) seems hesitant at times.
