Is your history book written in a dry and sparse style, John Keegan?
LEADERSHP MATTERS --- CHARISMA comes from our passion for our vision. Quotes on Charisma: "Charisma is the result of effective leadership, not the other way around." — Warren Bennis and Burt Nanus Leaders: The Strategies for Taking Charge "There can be no power without mystery. There must always be a 'something' which others cannot altogether fathom, which puzzles them, stirs them, and rivets their attention. Nothing more enhances authority than silence. It is the crowning virtue of the strong, the refuge of the weak, the modesty of the proud, the pride of the humble, the prudence of the wise, and the sense of fools." — Charles de Gaulle "The leader of men in warfare can show himself to his followers only through a mask, a mask that he must make for himself, but a mask made in such form as will mark him to men of his time and place as the leader they want and need." — John Keegan "Never reveal all of yourself to other people; hold back something in reserve so that people are never quite sure if t .. ...

It's all kicking off in the ESPN studio, I fancy John Barnes to get Keegan in an headlock
John Barnes, Craig Burley and Kevin Keegan - a football analysis triumvirate of mediocrity.
I'm not one for bashing pundits, but Ray Stubbs, Kevin Keegan, Craig Burley and John Barnes is a massive steaming pile of horse ***
Had a really good day with john keegan and mikey
Two spellbinding quotes I've just read; the first from John Keegan's book, "The First World War": "What men like Adolf Hitler learned from that first Holocaust (WWI), they would repeat twenty years later in every corner of Europe. From their awful cult of death the continent is still recovering." The second, from Robert Cowley's essay in "What If?" Has an application in more personal struggles, as well as imagining a world with a severely truncated First World War: "There are times when you can measure the lasting effects of a trauma only by imagining their absence." Wow. How true is that?
Just got done listening to the audio book by John Keegan, "Winston Churchill - A Life". I've long had an interest in Churchill. He was one of the most determined Englishmen ever. I would spend long periods of time taunting my friend Matthew Lunn that he wasn't nearly as cool. He told me I wasn't either but since I wasn't English that didn't matter. Reading this book helped dispel some of the illusions about W.S. He was a great man - especially for the period of history he was in power - but a deeply flawed man as well. He was extremely smart but made many poor choices. This showed him as much more human than the statues and even, I'm sure, his bunker. Which the Brits wanted twenty pounds sterling to go in and see. Are you kidding me? Overall, an excellent book. It was detailed without becoming dull. Unlike some of the other biographies of W.S. I've read this one kept things moving along at a fast enough clip you could listen to it without either nodding off or slitting your wrists.
John Keegan asked Bill Clinton to remember the Canadians in a speech during a D Day anniversary.
Last week Gore Vidal and John Keegan died. I recalled John Keegan in a post which may be read here. Gore Vidal I did not recall. Although I enjoyed two of Vidal’s novels, Julian and Creation, I could not write a post about him without violating the maxim De mortuis nihil nisi bonum. Fortunately ...
Counterpunch August 08, 2012 The Boy Who Left to Grow The Critical Life of Robert Hughes by BINOY KAMPMARK “Life goes on despite theory, and so does art.” – Robert Hughes, “Jean Baudrillard: America,” New York Review of Books, 1989 They do seem to be falling like flies, creatures who wish to flee whilst they can – critics and practitioners of history of various persuasion, interest and intensity. Gore Vidal, Alexander Cockburn, John Keegan and now, wrenched from the art world, Robert Hughes, dead in a New York hospital. He was part of the Push, a group of Australian artists and intellectuals that bristled with talent and verve – Germaine Greer, Clive James amongst them, and with wanderlust, fled with them to Europe in the 1960s, where their minds were sharpened and nourished. The usual accolades will pick up the stunners – The Shock of the New that first aired on the BBC in 1980, engendered a broader interest in contemporary art and made Hughes a conspicuous commentator. It could do no oth ...
.looks back on meeting a pair of very different recently deceased authors, Gore Vidal and John Keegan:
There are so many! I recommend John Keegan and Gary Sheffield for academic military overviews. Also,The Beauty and the Sorrow
Sir John Keegan, who has died aged 78, achieved an international reputation as a military historian, then discovered a talent for writing rapid analyses of international crises as the defence editor of The Daily Telegraph.
British academic John Keegan, whose studies of men at war are counted among the classic works of military history, has died, the Daily Telegraph said Friday. A scholar of battle who never served in the military, Mr. Keegan's interests ranged from the American Civil War to the Iraq war by way of Agi...
Keegan's books include a traditional battle-by-battle coverage of conflict, experience of the individual, historical causes of military events, technological change in warfare, military strategy, and challenges of leadership.

John Keegan , whom The New York Times called “the preeminent military historian of his era,” is dead. 78 years old, he died after a long illness in England , where he was born and bred. Among his 20-plus books was A History of Warfare ( Alfred A. Knopf , 1993), one of the best-written and most...
Sir John Keegan was a great military historian and a brave and much-loved colleague
John Keegan asks us to consider questions that are seldom asked: What makes a great military leader? Why is it that men, indeed sometimes entire nations, follow a single leader, often to victory, but with equal dedication also to defeat? Dozens of names come to mind...Napoleon, L...
Another great has left our little 3rd Rock from the sun. Sir John Keegan died August 2nd. As a avid military history reader, I have all his books and have listened in on a lecture or two. His grasp of world politics was astounding, the insights into all things having to do with war phenomenal. Keegan was a instructor at Sandhurst (England's West Point), a journalist, and all-around good egg.
John Keegan's "The Face of Battle" remains one of my favorite books, even now on his passing
The Daily Telegraph newspaper says that noted British military historian, academic and journalist John Keegan has died. He was 78.
Very fortunate to have been taught by the brilliant Sir John Keegan while at Sandhurst. While I even won a signed copy of "The Face of Battle" as a prize, I fear I was not his brightest pupil by a long way.
Sad to hear of the death of Sir John Keegan, our greatest historian and author on WWII history.

That NYT obituary I linked gives some sense of the way his writing could be simultaneously magisterial and (/therefore) strenuous, both insightful and frustrating. I am just about the opposite of an infantryman… but then again Keegan himself never served in the military. So I’d like to pick out the ...
Sorry to hear of the passing of Sir John Keegan today. Professor Keegan was one of the world's greatest historians. He was the Senior lecturer at the Royal Miltary Academy and also taught at Princeton and Vassar College. Among his many books are The Face of Battle and a history of The Second World War. I think his novel, The First World War, is the best one volume novel of the war ever written.
John Keegan died today at 78 years old. He was the best war historian of he's era. Great Britain has lost a great man.

Saddened to learn of the passing of Sir John Keegan.
“There is no substitute for honour as a medium for enforcing decency on the battlefield, never has been, and never will be.” RIP John Keegan.
Sometimes I get disappointed that not all major newspapers will cite the obituary of a given famous person. Just read in NY Times that Professor John Keegan of the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, England--the consensus pick as the top military historian in the world--died the other day. This wasn't mentioned in L.A. Times at all.
R.I.P. John Keegan, one of best military historians ever.

John Keegan's best book was probably "The Face of Battle," in which battles on roughly the same ground in Northern France and Belgium (Agincourt, Waterloo and the Somme) over many centuries were contrasted. "Six Armies in Normandy" was an original take on the invasion. And his essays on command on land and at sea were quite good as well. For an article in magazine I edited, I went over to the Bettmann Archive in search of a picture of WW II shipyard that I hadn't seen a hundred times before -- and actually found one. So it was something of a kick to see the same picture in Keegan's history of the Second World War, when it came about a year later. Obviously, his picture selection policy was similar to mine.
Per Wikipedia: military historian John Keegan called Midway "the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare." Yep.
Chris Herbert has appointed John Keegan as his assistant manager. Keegan, who is 29 years old, is an experienced Welsh Premier defender with an UEFA “A” License coaching qualification who has appeared for Rhyl, Caernarfon and Welshpool. He has also previously played for Colwyn Bay, Runcorn FC, Scarborough, Hucknall Town and Burscough FC in the English pyramid. He started his career with York City where he made three appearances in 1999/2000 and went onto appear for Chester in the football league. He has also spent time coaching in the USA. Speaking on the appointment of his new assistant manager Chris Herbert commented: “I am delighted to appoint John as my assistant. I wanted him on-board as soon as I took the job on as I worked with “Keegs” when I signed him at Welshpool as a player. He is a ex-pro with Chester city, York city and Scarborough, so he has a lot of experience and I liked the way he was so professional in his approach to playing the game and commitment in training. Keegs is also a ...
I'm re-reading John Keegan's The Second World War and I came across a mention by him of something very logical but of which I had never heard. While the Mediterranean was closed by Germany and Italy, the allies operated what was called The Takoradi Route whereby the allies shipped aircraft to West Africa, assembled them, flew them across to East Africa, and then flew them up to Egypt. Something like 5,000 aircraft were delivered to Egypt, The Middle East and India via that route!
