Here is an exciting and informative guide to the most important battles in history. Superb color photographs of uniforms, weapons, and battle scenes give the reader a unique 'eyewitness' view of how battles were fought and won. See an Indian five-bladed dagger, a full Japanese suit of armor, medals from all over the world, a 'dragon cannon' and a surgeon's amputation saw. Learn about the difference between a cannon and a mortar, how balloons were used for reconnaissance, how rifles sent bullets farther and faster and how the Red Cross was set up.

The book is a DK book on different military style, weapons, fighting styles etc. The pictures are good, with great details about each. This is a good book to use while teaching history to children at a younger age and what soldiers and inventers did to make war. Read full review
