By Eliot A. Cohen and John Gooch. This is a delightful-if that is the right word for a book about wartime n between a young American military scholar and an eminent British historian. Their cases range across a century, and from Europe to the Middle East to Korea. Generalship matters, as does luck-hence the title's "misfortunes"-but they locate the roots of failure squarely in military organizations and their cultures.

Examines the three types of misfortune--failure to learn, to anticipate, and to adapt--and shows their implication in a variety of defeats in the twentieth century

Very well researched. I am involved in Military History Staff Rides and his argument for evaluation of not just decisions by commanders in war, but also the military system and doctrine in which this person grew up, is true. I intend to incorporate this aspect in the assessment of students in future.

While this book deals with military failures, the paralels to running a business or a family are rich and rewarding. One example: The story of the US failure in Korea, and how certain branches of the armed forces prevailed but other failed was fascinating ... we tend to think of events as successes or failures, but really they are combinations of successes and failures -- studying in a granular, detailed way illuminates both and allows one to succeed overall by cutting failing tactics and replacing them with successful ones. Many other rich paralels here too.

Very good book in explaining in some detail using a specific model why specific military campaigns or battles went wrong.

Would suit a specialist reader rather than a general interest one.

Cohen provides an unorthodox, yet highly effective way to look at military history, which lends itself to studying why organizations or systems in general can fail. Excellent book.

Analytically very strong; the "story-telling" aspect is not on the order of John Keegan

This book is about three major failures made in war. Especialy when 2 or all 3 of the failures were made, the war was lost. Preventing these 3 failures is not only useful for the military and in wars, but also for other people, and in other situations. For instance in business and in sports. So, in general one should adapt, anticipate and learn. The examples used in the book are very illustrating. Most recent examples are missing, for instance the first and second Gulf wars.
