Victor Davis Hanson talked about his book, The Savior Generals: How Five Great Commanders Saved Wars That Were Lost - From Ancient Greece to Iraq, in which he profiles five generals who, he argues, single-handedly turned around wars that their countries were losing. In his book, Professor Hanson discusses the lives of: Themistocles (Battle of Salamis), Flavius Belisarius (Byzantium), William Tecumseh Sherman (U.S. Civil War), Matthew Ridgway (Korean War), and David Petraeus (Iraq War). He spoke at Barnes and Noble Booksellers in Fresno, California. close
