War by Saul David

Post by levyarcher »

WAR
FROM ANCIENT EGYPT TO IRAQ

Editorial consultant: Saul David

Q. Who is the most decorated military hero in history?
Q. What is the most bizarre weapon ever used in warfare?
Q. What was it like to be held captive in Vietnam for almost 2,000 days?
Q. What was the greatest feat of military engineering?

Combining a clear and compelling historical narrative with hundreds of outstanding paintings and photographs, WAR is an unsurpassed visual history of every major conflict over the past 5,000 years, from the earliest battles to the War on Terror.

With a wealth of supporting features including eye-witness accounts, detailed galleries, and an exhaustive directory of battles and military miscellanea, WAR guides the reader through the strategies, tactics, warriors, weapons, technology and individuals that have shaped human warfare.

From sword and shield to shock and awe, this is the story of war with all its momentous, world-changing impact and extraordinary human stories.
