Pequena biografia
Sir John Keegan is a famed British military historian, lecturer, writer, and journalist who has published more than 20 books on combats between the 14th and 21st centuries, especially World War II. He was born in London to a family of Irish Catholic extraction. The long-term effects of a serious illness made him unfit for military service, and the timing of his birth made him too young to serve in World War II, as he mentions ironically in his work, given his profession and interest. Following his graduation from Oxford, he worked for a few years at the American Embassy in London. In 1960 he was appointed to a lectureship in Military History at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, the training establishment for officers of the British Army. Holding the post for 26 years, he became senior lecturer in military history. During this period, he also held a visiting professorship at Princeton University and was Delmas Distinguished Professor of History at Vassar College. In 1986, Keegan joined the Daily Telegraph as a defence correspondent and rose to become defence editor, also writing for the American conservative website National Review Online. In 1998 he wrote and presented the BBC's Reith Lectures, entitled "War in our World." Many of his books are bestsellers.

Resenhas

Em Inteligência na guerra, o historiador militar John Keegan concentra sua atenção - e a do leitor - na arte e na ciência de trabalhar com a informação em circunstâncias conflitivas. Essa área, conhecida como "inteligência", abrange desde aspectos "românticos" - associados às atividades de espiões, agentes duplos e traidores - até dados técnicos como radiação eletromagnética, escuta de som, observação por satélite e detecção de vestígios nucleares. Num relato acessível e interessante, Keegan revela episódios das guerras dos últimos séculos para ilustrar as complexidades inerentes às batalhas da inteligência. Examina, por exemplo, a Primeira Guerra (que trouxe o rádio e a rádio-escuta para o campo de batalha), a Segunda Guerra (caracterizada por extraordinário progresso técnico no campo militar e no da inteligência) e ações bélicas mais recentes, como a Guerra das Malvinas e a atual guerra contra o terrorismo. O autor demonstra que a inteligência, essencial para vencer uma guerra, não é suficiente em si mesma: o domínio do uso da força e fatores como rapidez de decisão, firmeza de propósito e bravura continuam sendo decisivos.… (mais)

O que é a guerra? Por que o homem luta contra o homem? Que diferenças há entre um guerreiro ianomâmi, um bárbaro das hostes de Átila e um soldado entrincheirado da Segunda Guerra Mundial? Como foi possível a humanidade chegar à beira da autodestruição total?
Conhecedor profundo de tudo o que diz respeito à história militar, John Keegan aborda neste livro essas e muitas outras questões ligadas à guerra, oferecendo uma visão abrangente da História da humanidade a partir das formas de guerrear e do progresso da tecnologia bélica. Ao mesmo tempo, não esquece que a história da guerra acompanha a história do homem e que a guerra é um testemunho permanente da força de instintos e emoções que o coração humano faz tudo para camuflar.… (mais)
