This is a pretty basic book, with basic information It s not something to refer to if you want any kind of in depth knowledge of either individual soldiers throughout history, or of the development of the fighting man over the centuries It s something that I would have loved in 8th grade, but now find rather plebeian Nice pictures though. This isn t the type of book you read from cover to cover They re like those old encyclopedias which are there for reference or casual reading What an astounding picture feast Such details too surrounding the different military strategies and the life of war If any of the research here was fabricatedwhat a fabrication indeed A thrilling read. I got this book shortly after getting battle at sea It had great pictures and had basic information I especially like the soldier pack, which is very neat However, at first I was disappointed because I thought it would be like battle at Sea However, after I realized it wasn t, I did enjoy it In the end, I think it is a great short read and a good introduction into Human war. I bought this for some visual reference It would work for a coffee table book, except for being paperback although, apparently there is a hardcover edition.The book covers from phalanxes up through the SAS Each period is given a couple pages treatment, and then photos of the kit of a soldier in the period take a spread The focus is on Europe and the United States and their wars.
