Review: Battle Studies

User Review  - Oldcat - Goodreads

This book is a historical watershed - the first to look at the behavior of men in combat as an emotional response rather than as a mechanical set of tactics or of just technology. Uses examples from ancient times to the 19th century, when it was written. Read full review
