Review: Battle

User Review  - Craig - Goodreads

This book covers armed conflict from pre-history to modern times. There are many good illustrations and some interesting bits of information. The text does not go in-depth so if you are looking for detailed accounts of particular wars or battles, this may not be the book you need. Read full review
