What does the Athenian expedition to Sicily, Alexander the Great at the Indus, Julius Caesar's crossing the Rubicon, Hitler at the border of Russia and Lyndon Johnson in Vietnam have in common? On Grand Strategy by John Lewis Gaddis explains how all these leaders were blinded by their past tactical achievements and deceived themselves that they had the capabilities to meet their expectations, and so ended up humiliated, defeated or dead.
