In the tradition of “Guns, Germs, and Steel,” Leebaert tells the stories of small forces that have triumphed over vastly larger ones and changed the course of history – from the Trojan Horse to Al Qaeda.

To illustrate his point, he covers Western military history, from the siege of Troy through the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
